Mini Saga now closed!

The 2010 Cordell Mini Saga has now closed for entries - and the judges are doing their work!

We have been delighted with the number of entries and the judges will have a tough job - but they are really looking forward to it!!

The result will be announced at a Tonypandy event on 7th November - keep an eye on for more information.

In the meantime there are loads of things to do in south Wales - especially if you want to escape the Ryder Cup - and the rain! How about a day at Big Pit or Rhondda Heritage Park - or explore Cyfarthfa Castle and take a look at how the other half lived during the industrial revolution! Have fun - there are loads of things to do here!
