Bryngarw Exhibition & The Mayor

The first public engagement for the newly-sworn-in Mayor of Bridgend Reg Jenkins, together with Mayoress Teresa Jenkins, was to visit the Garw Valley Heritage Society’s exhibition held over the bank holiday weekend at Bryngarw Park.

The Mayor and Mayoress have always been supportive of the Society in its aims to record and preserve the history of the Valley, and it was a pleasure to show them around the various stands on display.

Exhibits included sections on mining, railways, churches and chapels, as well as many artefacts from World War 1 in the trenches.
