A WORKERS' PARADISE. I Model Garden Village in Rhymney Valley The garden village scheme started at Pengam, in the Rhymney Valley, i6 now nearing completion. Over 100 houses are already finished and another 100 will be completed very shortly. It is one of the largest schemes attempted in South Wales, or, in fact. in the country. It is situated on a slight eminence near to Pengam and Blackwood railway stations. The houses are built in various designs and sizes. They are all semi-detached, have baths, and a hot and cold water ser- vice. Gas is laid on to each house, and everything done to make the house con- venient and up to date. Also, what is very important, a good stretch of ground is provided at the rear, and a small flower garden plot in the front of each house. It is undoubtedly one of the cleanest and b,t laid out villages in the country. The rents of the houses vary from 6s. Rd. to 8s. fid. per week. Iri addition to the erection of the houses a new school for fiOO children has just been erected in the centre of the village by the Monmouthshire County Council, and will bo opened in two or three weeks' time. Near the school, also in the centre of the village, is a shopping ceutre. where a number of shops are near- ing completion. These are now for sale, or will he let to suitable tenants. The scheme is an object lesson to housing, reformers, and marks a big step forward j in the laying of mining villages.
