My dream for colliery site

I read your report on Crumlin Navigation. I live in The Netherlands, but was brought up in the Sirhowy Valley.

I often pass Crumlin Navigation Colliery when I visit family in Blackwood. I have a fantasy plan for when I win the Euromillions Lottery. I want to give several million to completely restore the externals of this beautiful colliery to their former glory (hopefully in conjunction with Welsh Heritage and the Assembly). I want the internal spaces to be transformed into a centre for arts and crafts to serve the eastern Valleys with exhibition galleries, lecture theatre, rentable studios, pottery and sculpture workshops, classrooms for art lessons, cafeteria/restaurant with accommodation for a full-time caretaker and plenty of parking space. How does that sound?

Sadly, you would have to win the lottery because caerphilly cbc doesn't help any area except bargoed and from maesycwmmer down.

Bargoed is being given a cinema apart from everything else, when if it was in blackwood other areas could benefit from it aswell.
