Wall repair boost for residents and Saron project

Despite the poor weather a contractor yesterday began work on the neglected graveyard wall in Chapel Street, Troedyrhiw.

In a snowy Chapel Street workmen begin to dismantle the wall.

Friends of  Saron are very pleased that the Council has been able to persuade the owners of Saron graveyard to fund this essential work. Residents will welcome the rebuilding of a structure which had become extremely unsafe. Friends of Saron have been assured that the wall will be rebuilt using all of the original stones including the coping stones to produce something which is entirely in keeping with its history and location.

The work goes on.

The work goes on.

Friends of  Saron are particularly grateful for the support provided by Huw Lewis AM, ward councillors Gareth Lewis and Harvey Jones and officers of the Council in enabling this and other aspects of the Saron project to move forward.
