I am currently researching a degree about evacuation and education in Carmathen and Glamorgan and have come across a reference in the Carmarthen Archives about a group of children evacuated to Pencader between 1940-1944. Many of them lived in a hostel called The Beeches and went to school at Tabernacle Vestry. Others lived at the local public house. I wonder if anyone has any recollections of this. I am particularly interested in The Beeches because it was unusual for so many evacuees to be living in one place for such a long period.

Many thanks

Ar hyn o bryd rwy’n gwneud ymchwil gradd am fudo ac addysg yng Nghaerfyrddin a Morgannwg ac wedi dod ar draws cyfeiriad yn Archifau Caerfyrddin am grŵp o blant a gafodd eu mudo i Bencader rhwng 1940-44. Bu llawer ohonynt yn byw mewn hostel o’r enw The Beeches ac aeth i ysgol yn festri Tabernacl. Bu eraill yn byw mewn tafarn lleol. Tybed a oes unrhyw gofion gan unrhyw un am hyn. Mae diddordeb gen i’n arbennig yn the Beeches achos roedd hi’n anarferol i gymaint o faciwis fyw mewn un lle am y fath adeg hir.

Diolch yn fawr
