Formation of the Group
We are a volunteer group working to enhance our local community so that we can have a better and cleaner area to live in and to enjoy the natural surroundings and history we have in our area.
The group started as part of the Environment Section of Cwm,Waunlwyd & Victoria Community First Partnership.
We were a constituted group and therefore we formed our own group known as :- CWM COMMUNITY CARE in 2004.
The main reason for forming the group was, that in approximately 2000, a child from the local school found a 'Black Stone' on her way home. This black stone was actually a piece of Coal!
This prompted us to try to publicise the history of the Mines in the Ebbw Fawr Valley because we realised the younger generation did not know what coal was and why the village of Cwm was built.
