Bont Mural

Mural design

The bont mural project has involved the local children in Pontrhydfendigaid collecting stories relating to the heritage of their own community. The project has included holding storytelling community evenings which were held in the village hall and two local storytellers Charles Arch and Lyn Ebenezer visiting the school to tell the stories with the aim of the project being to strengthen and share local knowledge for future generations.

A mural was then created by the children to depict these stories which can be seen on the wall of a house in the centre of the village of Pontrhydfendigaid. The project has provided an opportunity to raise awareness of the history, traditions and heritage of the mining industry as well as other elements of culture and heritage of the area and has been recorded on a DVD.
