The first open day for the project will take place on Saturday May 12th at the Pontardawe Spring Festival http://www.npt.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=2487&event_id=8217
The event is open to everyone and will offer the chance for members of the local community to come along and meet our project members to discuss ideas for projects and research activities focused on the Industrial and post-industrial communities of the Swansea Valley.
The series of open days aims to build collaborations between Swansea University researchers and the local community to potentially turn discussed project plans into funding applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund to gain support for proposed activities http://www.hlf.org.uk/news/Pages/AllOurStories.aspx
So if you are a member of a local group or you simply have an interest in local history please come along! Our project members will be happy to discuss your ideas and offer suggestions.
