Bid to preserve Port Talbot school's history
FORGOTTEN magazines and photos from a school have been dug out to help preserve its 110-year history.
Former Glan Afan Comprehensive pupil Richard Gammon, who attended the school between 1959 and 1966, is creating a school archive.
Neath Port Talbot Council currently is planning to close the school, along with Cwrt Sart Comprehensive in Briton Ferry and Sandfields Comprehensive, and replace them with a £40 million super-school in the Baglan area.
If it was to close it would end a history of almost 120 years, so Mr Gammon is collecting memorabilia to preserve the school's history.

He said: "The response was limited but very productive, but so far dealing largely with the grammar school period.
"However the new headteacher of Glan Afan has been very helpful and organised a thorough search of the school which has unearthed quite a number of school magazines and photographs which I'm hoping to be able to get hold of soon.
"We have managed to find six of the long school photos of the grammar school years covering the period from 1921-64, and I have acquired the personal collections of two long serving members of staff covering the period 1921-73."
