Barrie Brothers Cyf was the name of the company so the new business will have to have a new company name as it's unlikely that they will trade as a partnership.

Am I being a bit too optimistic in thinking that my insurance company will be giving me a partial refund on my insurance payment now that they have this evidence?

I read that article earlier Steve and was really disappointed after reading it.      They had the business in a small building on the caravan site near the roundabout as you approach Newborough.     At the time we did many walks in that area and often finished it with a coffee and cake in the cafe, it represented good value for money and the food we had was very tasty too.
However they expanded their business and hiked up the prices so we stopped going there as soon as they did that.
What has happened in this case is one that really annoys me and I know that nothing will ever be done about it.    People often set out in business trading in their own name but as it expands then they form a limited company and become directors of it.     If the company goes in to liquidation then there is no comeback usually on the company directors and so they can trade again usually under another company name
When I was working one person I knew had traded under nine different company names and yet nothing could be done against the director as it was the limited company that was liable to pay the debts.
Like I say nothing will ever be done to correct this loophole whichever Party gets in to power at the next general election

Sea dogs and landlubbers alike descended on Conwy at the weekend for the town's annual Pirate Festival.

The event celebrates Wales' rich history of buccaneering seafarers, such as Pembrokeshire's infamous Black Bart, the former Governor of Jamaica Henry Morgan from Llanrumney and Rhuddlan brothers Owen and John Lloyd, who some believe were the true inspiration for Long John Silver in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.

The festival attracts thousands of visitors to Conwy each year to discover more about pirate history, immerse themselves in the music and arts that came out of the period and much more.
