Cynon Valley Museum & Gallery
Members will no doubt be aware that the Cynon Valley Museum & Gallery has been earmarked for closure by Rhondda Cynon Tâf County Borough Council. This most valuable civic amenity was won after a long struggle by the town’s citizens, but especially by History Society members, several of whom are no longer with us.
A public meeting was organised with the purpose of opposing the
closure of the Museum & Gallery. It took place on Monday, February 3rd at Green
Street Methodist Church. As a consequence, the following activities were organised:
on Saturday February 22nd, a demonstration to take place outside the Cynon Valley Museum &
Gallery, moving to Aberdare Market. The event has now occurred: the weather
was fine and there was a good turnout - click the small ‘photos’ image
Facebook page to see a photo gallery of Saturday’s demonstration, and here for coverage in the local press.
On Monday February 24th we took the petitions and letters to the Council HQ at Clydach Vale. The Cabinet will be making their decision in March and we intend to organise another bus on that date. Details about this to be advised.
The online petition has been handed in with additional letters of support. There were 1,142 signatures spread over 37 pages with support from all over the world !
