Blog hits!

Mr Richard Hopkins who was instrumental in the setting up of our site, has informed the Society that the weblog received some 417 hits during the past month. The hits were around half directly to the site and the other half were from random searches. A simple multiplication shows that on a yearly basis this site is gaining some five thousand visitors, and shows how popular local history is becoming. Long may the interest in the history of Resolfen and its locality continue.

Valleys Voices

Mr Cliff Harris has also given us a snippet from Valleys Voices featuring a long lost football team. The photograph shows the Clyne Junior Football team 1933-34, who played their fixtures on a field behind Heol Nant, Clyne. L. Harris went on to play for Wales and Fred Richards is the only member of the team still alive. If anyone has any further information regarding the photograph,please let us know.
