Roath People: Nicole Rugman

Hello! I’m Nicole and I am a communications designer in Roath.

Cardiff born, Cheshire bred, but I’ve been back in Cardiff for the past 10 years and I chose to live in Roath. I’ve lived in seven houses here so I know the area pretty well. Roath is small and personable but big on community.  Always something going on.

I have an allotment in Penylan which I have cultivated for 6 years that overlooks Roath Lake.  In the summer I sit on the plot looking over Roath eating strawberries.  Lovely.

I can’t talk about Roath without mentioning the Albany pub, it’s been my local since I moved here.  They always have amazing guest ales and the beer garden is full of cherries off the trees in the summer!  Oh, and there’s Ichiban Sushi Bar on Albany Road too… my addiction!
