A DIGITAL HISTORY OF ABERAVON RFC

With support and  funding from the Big Lottery, Aberavon Wizards brought together their own ‘Time Team’ at the Talbot Athletic Ground. Supported by community organisations, NPTCBC, NPT Library Services, all 4 secondary schools and a team of voluntary archivists from among the club’s supporters, the ‘Time Team’, brought the entire community together. 

St Joseph’s School & 6th Form Centre, Ysgol Bae Baglan, Ysgol Cwm Brombil, and Ysgol Bro Dur worked together to deliver a 20 minute film documentary which former Wizards favourite and BBC Wales Sport’s ‘Man in the Van’ Sean Holley, helped script, film, edit and direct with pupils from all 4 schools.

A2B Active Sport CIC coordinated the delivery of the documentary (which can be viewed below), an interactive eBook for schools and a film premiere for all involved at the Aberavon Beach Hotel for release of the documentary.
