The Ynysowen Beeline Event

We, at Taff Rocks, want to celebrate you! We want to celebrate that, even with all our differences, we can all work together regardless of age, gender, religion and everything else. We also want to celebrate the humble bumble bee, without which, our lives would be so much different.

To do this, on Friday June 21st, Taff Rocks are making a BeeLine for the old pit wall in Nixonville in Merthyr Tydfil. The event starts at 1pm and ends at 5pm.

Latest News and Updates

Back in 2018, the co-founders promised themselves that they'd bring Taff Rocks Rock Schools aka workshops, out into the community. To do this, they needed to fundraise!  

At the end of last month, we were successful in our Small Grants application, for start-up, from Invest Local in the Ynysowen Area. This grant will enable us to secure DBS checks, Public Liability Insurance, and some basic start-up materials and equipment.
