Ken Davies delivered fruit and vegetables and newspapers to
Ponthir and Caerleon. His cart was a regular sight as far from
his home in Ponthir as Ultra Pontem. Residents still remember
how his horse, Vicky, knew the route he took and needed no guidance.
She even came to a halt by herself when he jumped off the back
of the cart to make deliveries.
He was a regular at the Ponthir House and had his own antique
chair with a sign saying: "This chair may be used by anyone
when Mr Davies is not in residence."
Sadly the 22 year old horse, Vicky, died in April 2000 and Ken
died just two weeks later.
