Memories of Y Bwthyn workshop this Saturday

Macmillan Cancer Support and Cwm Taf University Health Board are working together to transfer the services at Y Bwthyn in Pontypridd Cottage Hospital to a new, state-of-the-art palliative care unit within the grounds of the Royal Glamorgan Hospital. A ‘History Wall’ is being created as a focal point for the new Unit to tell Y Bwthyn’s story,  celebrating and sharing the rich history and landscape of the much loved service at Pontypridd Cottage hospital and the significant landmarks and events on its doorstep.

We want to hear from anyone who has a treasured memory or view to share of Y Bwthyn and will be running an art and writing workshop this Saturday April 14th, 2 – 4pm at Pontypridd Museum to gather words and images. The workshops will be supported by local artists David Mackie, Heather Parnell and Becky Adams and poet, Clare Potter.

If you feel you would like to contribute to the workshop we would be delighted. Equally, if you are able to share this information and encourage others who may have had a connection to Y Bwthyn to come along, we would appreciate it enormously.  The event is free. No experience is needed. You can contact Heather Parnell on; 0779 5554515 for further information or email her at
