A section of the A4119 Tonypandy by-pass has been named Rhondda Rotary Way to celebrate the Rhondda club"™s 60th birthday.

The Rotary Club of Rhondda was established in December 1955 and over the past 60 years its members have volunteered their time to raise tens of thousands of pounds to support community projects and local charities. Club members have been considering ways to celebrate its birthday and raise awareness and its profile at the same time. Discussions were held with the Rhondda Cynon Taff Council, and the Council was pleased to be able to recognise Rhondda Rotary’s long standing commitment to supporting humanitarian projects, especially in the Rhondda community, by naming a section of the A4119, Ffordd Rotari Rhondda / Rhondda Rotary Way, to celebrate its 60 th year.
