Many thanks from Troedyrhiw

Community archaeologist Jan Bailey recently received a presentation from Friends of Saron. This was made on behalf of residents of Troedyrhiw to thank Jan for the work she has done to help the young people of the village to develop a better understanding of and interest in their heritage.

Volunteer Day 36.10.13 096


From the early part of this year Jan has been working with Friends of Saron and the staff of the Primary school, Scouts and Willows Youth Club  to involve the young people of Troedyrhiw in a range of activities related to the history of the village.  Jan has certainly been a ‘hit’ with younger residents who, she says, are now attracted to her as if she were the Pied Piper whenever she visits!

Jan is now moving on to work in other areas but will continue to follow the progress of the Saron Project and has promised to visit us from time-to-time. Friends of Saron hope to maintain the youth engagement links which Jan has established.

For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
