With your support Troedyrhiw can be a ‘star’

Troedyrhiw Silver Band, 1952

In 1852 Troedyrhiw was, according to one newspaper, developing into a ‘star of the first magnitude’. A century later in 1952 a community leader was able to say that our village has ‘always excelled in group activities and there has hardly been a time in living memory when we have not had our football team, dramatic societies, village band and choirs, all highly successful’.

About davidjcollier

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
