Sheila, Lynda, Stephen, Pat and David represented Friends of Saron at this extremely successful event which was held last Saturday at Canolfan Soar in Merthyr.
We were treated to an interesting and absorbing day (partly bilingual with simultaneous translation) which included items on:-
- ‘The Bethesda Cause’ by Rev. Tudor Jones
- ‘Welsh Chapels’ by the author Huw Owen
- ‘The Organ in Chapels’ by D.G. Smith FTCL, ARCM
- ‘Soar Chapel’ by local historians Steve Brewer and Carl Llewellyn ( including a book launch on ‘The History of Soar Chapel’ by Steve Brewer)
In addition, Friends of Saron presented a display and a short talk on ‘The History of Saron Chapel, Troedyrhiw’ and ‘The Saron Graveyard Project’. This was very well received with many positive comments being made and some useful links established.
