Great War Exhibtion Victoria Gardens

War Horse made from willow.
Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council have opened an exhibition on the First World War in Victoria Gardens, Neath. The exhibition was opened by the Mayor of Neath Port Talbot on Monday 24th November, and featured exhibits from Neath supplied by many individuals and organizations. Many thanks to Mr Glyn Davies for providing photographs on our behalf to the organizers. Though quite small, the exhibition features an artwork of a cavalry horse made from  local willow and a length of trench. It is well worth spending some time any member is in Neath town centre.
