Adam, Dewi, Dyfan and Nel have the best jobs in Rownd a Rownd at the moment. The four of them are the current paperboys (and girl) at Morton’s.
Having a paper round is such a prestigious job in Cilbedlam that Adam was given his round as a birthday present by Callum!
Approximately 30 paper boys and girls have had a regular round since the very first series – including Mr Lloyd – but do you know who the four original paper boys were?
In the very first episode broadcast in 1995, Dylan Parri, Mei Hughes and Ari Jones were the three who got up early to collect their bags full of newspapers from Islwyn Morgan at Morton’s, and shortly after, Dylan’s sister, Ffion, persuaded Islwyn that she was both old enough and responsible enough to have a round too.
But what happened to the four?
Ari was also the first of the original four to leave Cilbedlam when he went off to Glasgow to study Civil Engineering.
Dylan was the second person to appear in the first episode of Rownd a Rownd … and the first to speak … as he complained about being woken by Ffion, who wanted to follow him on his round!
Mei stayed in Cilbedlam after leaving school taking a job as the local newspaper’s photographer … after giving up his round, of course!
After several failed relationships with several of Cilbedlam’s ladies, Mei found the love of his life as he married Emma in a simple ceremony with very little fuss.
In fact, the only people present at the wedding except for Mei and Emma were Mal and Terry who acted as witnesses, and before too long the couple had moved to Cardiff along with Elin, Emma’s daughter, after Mei had been accepted onto a photography course in the capital.
Ffion was the last of the four to leave the village. After her mother, Anna and her partner, Bob ‘Beics’, moved to Ireland to run a golf club, Ffion stayed in Cilbedlam to finish her studies at Ysgol Glanrafon and moved to live with Nia.
She left Cilbedlam after leaving school in order to run her father, Glyn’s restaurant in Morecambe.
