Saron Project Christmas Cards and 2015 Calendar Now on Sale!

The usual seasonal fundraising for Friends of Saron is now taking place through the sale of Christmas cards and calendars in the village and by personal contact with Friends of Saron members.

This year many of the images used have come from a recently acquired collection of historic photographs of Troedyrhiw and the surrounding area.

The George Bevan Collection of Photographs.

Keen photographer Mr George Bevan took these photographs in the period from the end of the 19th century into the early 20th century when he was headmaster of Troedyrhiw Boys’ School.

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. 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
