    Pit to Port

    I joined pupils of Porth County Community School and Hafod Primary School to launch the new Pit to Port mosaic at Trehafod Station last week. The mosaic marks the history of the Rhondda and Cardiff through the journey of coal from pit to port, and has been supported by Arriva Trains and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

    I also mentioned this in the National Assembly last week:

    Leighton Andrews: I welcome your previous announcement on the funding for the feasibility of six-car coaches on the Treherbert line. However, will you welcome a subsidy from perhaps a surprising source, the Heritage Lottery Fund, which is providing support for the remarkable mosaic, entitled ‘From Pit to Port’ at Trehafod railway station, developed by pupils at Porth County Community School and Hafod Primary School? When you next visit events at the Heritage Park or the Heritage Park Hotel, I urge you to stop off at that station and see that mosaic for yourself.

    Andrew Davies: I am more than happy to give that commitment. As a regular rail user, I look forward to going up to the Rhondda on the train next time and stopping at that station
