"Children of Craig-y-nos" exhibition ends

Yesterday the exhibition , Children of Craig-y-nos, came to a close in The Welfare Hall, Ystradgynlais.

It has been very successful and I wish to give a special ,"thank-you" to Cynthia Mullan of the Sleeping Giant Foundation and the staff at The Welfare Hall for their help and co-operation with this exhibition.

Without their support and encouragement from the very beginning this would not have been possible.

While most people who visited the exhibition were from within the Swansea Valley, Brecon and Cardiff areas we do know that people came from as far afield as Yorkshire, Norfolk ,Southampton, Hampshire, Coventry, and Scotland ( apart from myself!).

All were either ex-patients or had some connection with Craig-y-nos like Mary Sutton-Coulson, daughter of Dr Williams ( Hampshire) or Dr Gwyn Thomas (Norfolk - ex-patient).

Meanwhile the exhibition continues online at:
