Rhigos and Penderyn are two beautiful villages at the top of the Cynon Valley, historically the villages have been industrial, serving the community through trade and employment. Over the last few years the villages have had to seek support through other means, such as quarries and distilleries. The social structure of these areas has also changed and now support social and private housing. These villages have charm and character. They equally have their own community centres with various activites being run throughout the week.These villages have primary schools and there is a range of shops and businesses within the industrial estates. As your local Police Community Support Officer I can be contacted on my Blackberry Mobile Telephone or via the weekly Police Surgery at Rhigos Community Centre, every Thursday at 2pm or via 101.

- ILLEGAL PARKING OUTSIDE PENDERYN PRIMARY SCHOOL
- Since the new school has been built in Penderyn and the yellow zigzags have been in place, parents dropping off and collecting children from the school have been parking on these lines.
This has been addressed and discussed in numerous PACT meetings, this has included several officers from Hirwaun attending at the location and issuing fixed penalty notices. However things never seem to improve.
PCSO Linsey Band will be conducting a walk to school to try and ease the problems outside the school. The speeding also on the A4059 is going to be an issue that we will be looking at long term.
- Skates and Scooters in Rhigos
- Many residents have reported that large groups of children aged between 5 and 12 years old are congregating in Heol y Bryn and Heol y De - they are gathering to play on skateboards and scooters. This behaviour is causing annoyance to residents and neighbours.
- Yr Eithrin, Penderyn
- The land of the Yr Eithrin in Penderyn falls within the Brecon Beacons National Park. Members of Penderyn Neighbourhood watch have been instrumental in organising the clearing of the scrubland. It is hoped that funding will be secured to turn this location into a most useable space to be enjoyed by the village community.
:- The Yr Eithrin has been cut back and the paths are clearer, a good improvement and the area appears less overgrown.
