Garw Valley Rocks!

Sienna Edwards wrote to the Community Council to let us know about the fundraising she’d been doing during the first COVID lockdown.  She asked if the council would make a donation towards the funds she had raised and if there was a place in Parc Calon Lan that would be suitable to put a tribute to the NHS and those who’ve been affected by COVID-19.  Children throughout the valley painted rocks during this time and a suitable location was needed to place them; Sienna had also written a poem.

The council were keen to help and donated £25.  In addition they agreed to identify a spot near the Calon Lan monument where the rocks could be cemented, along with a slate slab with the words of the poem that Sienna had written.

Sienna can be seen in the photo being presented with her cheque and a letter from the council by the Chair of Council, Councillor Chris Lloyd.
