We have enjoyed the last two meetings very much.

Our February speaker was unable to come, but all was not lost as Mary gave a very interesting talk about her great uncle, John Pryce Jones (Uncle Jack). Uncle Jack was brought up by two aunts in Pencader and went to school locally. He was very clever and later studied Organic Chemistry at Aberystwyth University. During WW1, Uncle Jack became a Sub Lieutenant in the Navy, based at Orkney. In 1919, he returned to university and studied Chemistry, later becoming a lecturer and researcher. John Pryce Jones retired in West Wales.

As usual, in March we celebrated St. David’s Day with a delicious lunch and meeting at The Porth Hotel.

Coming up in April we have Davina Watson giving a talk on Victorian Costume.

In May, we will be visiting Abergavenny Market with Taf Valley Coaches. So, lots to look forward to in the next couple of months!

We meet at 2:00pm in the Pavilion on the first Tuesday of the month. Feel free to come along. We’d be pleased to see you.
