On 4 March 2016, Llantrisant Community Council unveiled a bench to Beddau born paralympian Sara Head, in recognition of her achievements during the 2012 London Paralympics, and other table tennis competitions worldwide. The bench, which was specially commissioned, was funded by money out of Beddau and Tynant's project budget.
Community Council Chair at the time Cllr Allan Matheson commented the he "would like to take this opportunity to thank you(Sara) for your contribution in being a good ambassador, and role model for the many children in our area, and we hope that your achievements, will inspire many more young people, of all abilities to emulate your success.
As you will see from the photos, the day was a great success and Sara Head was extremely pleased to be honoured with such a unique recognition, stating "It's way better than a gold post box"!
