Cynon Together

This year has tested our community, first by flooding, then by the spread of the Coronavirus. Our lives have changed and they may never be the same again. Throughout this our community has stayed strong, we have come together when we have needed each other most. We will always remember this difficult time. This year has also challenged the museum find out here how we are responding to those challenges and ensure our memories are not forgotten.

We are one valley, we are one community
