Heritage and Family History Open Day – 3rd October 2011

There was a large turn out for the Society’s first Open Day held on 3rd October.  We have received a lot of feedback from many sources and everyone has congratulated us on a very successful day, including Mayor Harry Bebell, who spent over an hour touring the displays.

Our members put together a number of displays, made up of material from our archives, and family artefacts, covering a wide range of aspects of the history of our village. The accompanying photographs show the variety of topics covered.

The Society has to thank several visiting organisations who all contributed to the success of the day – the Neath Antiquarian Society, Glamorgan Family History Society, West Glamorgan Archive Services, WAFERS, Park Players Drama Group and our local genealogist Mr. Chris Morris.

We look forward to welcoming those who attended the Open Day to future meetings of the Society.
