We have received notification from Rhondda Cynon Taf Council that they have decided on a name for the housing development in Gilfach Goch.
A few months ago, we approached two schools in the area to allow the pupils to enter our competition to Name the Housing Development, in a chance to win either £500 for the school or the equivelent in man-hours, and the winning pupil wins a £50 Amazon Gift card.
We had to send 3 of best entries to the Council and they would decide the Name of the Development.
The Winning School is Abercerdin Primary School, and the winning Pupil is Kyla Pearce with Yr Hen Ffordd Geffylau (Old Horse Way)
The reason behind her choice of name is “Because ‘Old Horse Way’ was the name of the escape tunnel that the miners used after the pit explosion in 1907”.
