Taking better care of and protecting Saron Graveyard

The Historic Environment (Wales) Bill is currently passing through the Welsh Assembly. This will legislate to take better care of and protect Wales’ important historic buildings and monuments.
It’s good to know that Merthyr has recently been awarded £365,000 to restore and protect some historic buildings.

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
