Cynthia Mullan of The Sleeping Giant Foundation

Well, I walked into Craig-y-nos last Sunday expecting to meet maybe two or three people. Instead there was at least 10 or maybe more people all eager to talk and share their experiences and memories. The same again on Monday and more on Tuesday too. It was incredible. Everyone was wanting to share their photos and memories. I came home to find a backlog of 50 phone calls, emails, and letters. Some amazing stories have emerged. Please be patient as I try to sort it all out.
Many conversations started with:"This is the first time in 50 years I have spoken about Craig-y-nos..." and the stories would start to pour out.

The Sleeping Giant Foundation, ( new media charity dealing with oral history) based in Abercraf has offered to help collate information.
