BBC “Street Auction”, Clydach
 
Heol y Nant in Clydach was turned into a street party for the filming of this BBC new series, which aims to unearth items for auction to raise funds for local causes. There were also cake stalls to help boost the profits.

In spite of quite a wet summer’s day, spirits were not dampened and towards the end of the event we sang a few songs to entertain while the proceeds were being counted.

Paul Martin, well known for his appearances on “Flog It”, was in charge, and although his trademark blue suit became quite damp, he managed to keep smiling and charmed the crowd (and the Choir) with his easy affable style.

We are glad to report that a sum of over £2,200 was raised to support a young local family who had lost their husband and father at an early age.

We thank the people of Heol Y Nant, and Paul and his film crew for their warm welcome, and look forward to seeing the finished programme in September.
