    Hi there. My 83 yr old mother was part of the first group of teachers at the Cardiff school. She has a few old photos from the 1950s that she wants to possibly donate. We plan to visit the area this summer, stay at a local place, and visit her old stomping grounds. Could you please contact me asap as we would like to book a weekday stay there. Thank you so much.
