No apologies, but this year we have made a bit of a fuss about the need to give more attention to historic school buildings, which are being lost in significant numbers now, very often without any record being made. Schools are important from a community, cultural and heritage perspective. Our concern was sparked by the sudden demolition of Cwrt Sart, Briton Ferry and led us to contacting one of our local Assembly Members, Bethan Sayed AM, who raised the matter with Cadw and the Minister for Heritage at the Senedd. It also led us to voluntarily undertake a photo survey of Cymer Afan school in the Afan Valley, near Port Talbot just as the demolition crews moved in. Expect us to return to the subject
