Friends of Saron welcomed community archaeologist Jan Bailey to Troedyrhiw’s snow blanketed Saron Graveyard yesterday. Jan, who works on youth engagement projects for Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust confirmed our view that the Saron site has considerable local historical value.
Jan’s mission is to work with community groups ‘to enthuse young people about their own local heritage.’
Jan will be approaching youth groups and schools in the village with some interesting project proposals. Friends of Saron look forward to being actively involved in this exciting new venture.
