A temporary suspension of this project in Troedyrhiw

During the continuing public health emergency the Saron Graveyard Project, Troedyrhiw has been unable to move forward. But our volunteers remain as determined as ever to rescue this important local asset while maintaining a balance between wildlife and heritage. As soon as it is a safe to do so we expect that contractors will move onto the site to carry out planned work and our volunteers will resume the programme of improvement activities. Meanwhile, all we can do is keep safe which we hope that all of you are also doing. Watch this space for future updates on this project and many thanks for your interest and support.


Do something amazing in Troed-y-rhiw

SARON GRAVEYARD PROJECT, TROED-Y-RHIW – VOLUNTEER DAYS
We desperately need to boost the number of volunteers that regularly attend our volunteer days and are appealing to anyone that feels that they are able to devote an hour or two every 4 to 6 weeks to contact us or simply to turn up at our next event. Details are as follows:-

Date & Time: Saturday 15 February from 10:00am
At: Saron Graveyard, Chapel Street, Troed-y-rhiw

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PARTICULAR EVENT COULD BE CALLED OFF AT SHORT NOTICE DUE TO BAD WEATHER OR IF CONTRACTORS HAVE BEGUN WORK ON THE BOUNDARY WALLS.


Have an excellent Christmas 2019 and a very good New Year 2020.

Season’s Wishes from the Saron Graveyard Project, Troedyrhiw.


Saron Project Receives Approval of Wildlife!

One of our volunteers took these pictures last Saturday in Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw. This Robin was a very curious little fellow checking out everything that we were doing and possibly being a little upset that we had invaded his territory. Or could it be that he was responding to our appeal for new volunteers? If he can do it then so perhaps can you! We would love to see you at a future volunteer day. You will be made most welcome. Why not send us a message today?


Two more events in Troedyrhiw next week

With extensive structural work on the boundary walls in the pipeline for next year our volunteers can now concentrate on completing improvement work on the interior of Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw. We also need to ensure that the project leaves a lasting legacy which will require arrangements to be made for future maintenance, accessibility and use.
If you are interested in your local heritage then please show your support by popping in to one or both of these events in Troedyrhiw next week.
PLEASE NOTE AMENDED DATE FOR MEETING – Friday 15th NOT Thurs 14th.


A good omen for the Saron Graveyard Project

The sun beamed down on Saron Graveyard, Troedyrhiw yesterday. This must be a good omen for this project.


A place to be proud of?

Friends of Saron have, once again, cleared fly-tipped rubbish from the path that runs past the graveyard from Chapel Street to Cardiff Road in Troedyrhiw. Residents deserve to be able to enjoy a high quality environment that they can take pride in. Please report incidents of this illegal and anti-social activity to the Council.
