Friends of Cosmeston Medieval Village pledge to set up charity

Friends of Cosmeston Medieval Village held their first public meeting – and pledged to set up a registered charity to operate activities at the village.

Held on May 16 at the Lower Penarth Community Centre on Brockhill Way, around 40 people attended, including archaeologists, living history enthusiasts, local residents and newly elected councillors.

The meeting, organised by archeologist Karl-James Langford, campaigner Valerie Poole, and councillors Tracey Alexander and Mark Wilson, saw a steering committee established to run the charity.

Karl-James Langford, a senior archeologist with Archaeology Cymru, said the ultimate aim was to lease the village from the Vale Council and get visitors to return to the increasingly desolate site.
