Open Penygraig Paddling Pool

It's terrible that the residents of the Rhondda have to travel all the way to Pontypridd if the children are to have any free fun in the water, not everybody can afford to travel to Pontypridd. Unfortunately the council have refused point blank to open any Paddling Pool in RCT, including the one in Penygraig. 

Having held several public meetings, a team has come together under the chairmanship of local resident Josh Davies to make the dream of re-opening the paddling pool in Penygraig a reality next Summer. They have now secured charity status for Friends of Penygraig Park, and have started writing applications for funding. 

If you would like to get involved then please either fill in the on-line form (follow the link below) or you can pick up a volunteering form from many of Penygraig's local businesses.

Labour's controversial school shake-up plan


The Labour-controlled Rhondda Cynon Taf council is behind plans to implement the most controversial school shake-up in the history of the county borough.

They propose spending £75 million to close 11 schools and create three “super” schools. The plans, which have been approved by the Labour Cabinet, could be implemented by 2018.

Plaid Cymru is opposed to the plans because they are muddled and it is unclear how they will improve our children’s education. Many parents are against the plans because of the increased travel, the wide age range within the super schools and the loss of valued community assets.

We have already seen the impact that Labour’s school closure programme has brought to communities like Pentre and Wattstown.
