The best thing about running I Loves The 'Diff and doing the Taffywood lark is when we get to meet and speak to lots of people who share our passion for Cardiff and/or Wales.
We try our best to provide a great service to our valued customers – here's a few of the comments from the many of you who've emailed, written and tweeted. We look forward to chatting with you – please use this address:
