BBC Wales X-Ray took a variety of items for evaluation; a 9 carat gold chain, 9 carat bracelet, 18 carat ring and some broken bits of gold watch strap. There was a huge difference in the cash they were offered for the lot, the lowest price being £180 and the highest £397, from two different outlets in Swansea. As part of their shop, we visited four different outlets run by the Guardian Jewellery Company. They’re currently running an advertising campaign on TV and in Welsh newspapers, featuring Wales rugby player Lee Byrne. They claim to be the “foremost buyer of second hand jewellery in Wales”, and the company has over 100 branches in the UK and Ireland. You would think, being the same retailer that the reporters would be offered the same money for our gold. But, they weren’t. They were offered between £275 and £360 for all their jewellery. And there were big differences in the prices offered for the items individually from shop to shop. The ring brought a quote of £45 in Guardian Jewellery’s Port Talbot outlet but a quote of £80 in Neath. For the chain there was a big difference – from £125 offered in Cardiff to £180 in Swansea.

Ultimate Spelling is widely regarded as a global leader in the spelling-improvement software sector. With this accolade the team is naturally interested in discovering those who have taken their spelling ability the extra mile. However, one nine year old Polish girl living in Wales has caught their attention so much that they are today offering her their official congratulations.
Agnieszka Runa-Ann Kolaczynska is just nine years old and, originally from Poland, now resides in the small Welsh village of Llidiartywaun. Agnieszka recently returned to Wales after winning a national championship title in the World Education Games Spelling championship.
As Marc Slater, Managing Director of the company behind Ultimate Spelling explains, the young champion obviously gets enough practice just by spelling her own name.
I can count twenty six letters in her full name the same amount of letters in the English language he says.
Continuing, Coupled with the fact that she comes from a village which is virtually impossible to spell, let alone pronounce, its obvious she is set for a bright future as a spelling superstar.
While speaking with the media, Agnieszka puts her success down to her requirement to spell lots of complicated Polish words, along with many of the similarly unpronounceable villages in her current home country.
In fact, in a news feature with the UKs Daily Mail newspaper, Agnieszka said that If you can spell my name you can spell just about anything. After learning to spell Polish names and Welsh places, English is a doddle.
Slater believes that this a perfect case-in-point that practice really does make things perfect.
Agnieszka has only managed to get to where she is by sheer practice. Its just like the routine our spelling improvement software, Ultimate Spelling, creates. Just a few minutes each day really does work wonders he concludes.
