Four sets of twins move into the flats for sale in Pontyclun at Meadow Walk
11 August 2011
Meadow Walk in Pontyclun is attracting double the attention after residents were left amazed when four sets of twins moved in within doors of each other.
The families with twins, who are all aged between one and two years old, have all moved to the flats for sale in Pontyclun at Meadow Walk within 12 months, but had never met before.
Engineers Natalie and Paul Chamberlain were the first family with twins to arrive at when they moved in with their twin girls, Chloe and Grace, who are now 19 months old.
Rachel Willmington, a senior youth worker, and her engineer husband Matthew, then moved in with their twins, a little boy Rylan and a little girl Eleri, who are now two. The couple made the move to Meadow Walk just two weeks after their second son, Callan, was born.
Residents were then stunned to see another family with twins moved in on the same street as Rachel and Matthew. James Munroe and Laura Rolley have twin boys, Daniel and Rhys, who are one.
The newest residents, Carrie and Dan Smith, who both work in the media, amazingly set up home just three doors away from James and Laura. Carrie and Dan’s identical twin girls, Betsy and Scarlett, are two years old.
Carrie said: “I was absolutely gobsmacked when I heard that there were already so many twins at Meadow Walk. It’s really hard to meet other parents with twins, especially ones the same age as yours, so to have three others right on our doorstep in incredible. When we moved in, I saw James and Laura and their boys in a double buggy just a few doors down, and I thought that was a pretty big coincidence, so you can imagine my surprise to find out that there were more. I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone and watching all the children grow up together.”
