It is with sadness that we note the huge loss to our branch on 21st November 2019 of Marina Davies, Heddfryn, New Inn.

Marina was a member of the branch from its inception and she was enthusiastic and loyal for over half a century. As joint secretary for two years until the summer of 2019 she took great pride and enjoyment in organising activities to celebrate the half centenary celebrations. Everyone enjoyed the concert by Dafydd Iwan and local talent and also the afternoon tea where Bro Eirwyn choir and Sandie Stefanetti took part.

During her time with Merched Y Wawr Marina worked hard on a local, county and national level where she was well respected by all. It was always such a pleasure and privilege to be in her company and have such fun at every activity.

In our local branch we feel that we have not only lost an enthusiastic and valued member but also a close and very dear friend.

December 2019

As usual we did not have a meeting in December but went to sing carols at some local residential homes.

On the 9th December we were warmly welcomed by staff who had prepared delicious snacks for us at Maesllewellyn Care Home, Newcastle Emlyn where our dear past member, Mrs Rachel Evans of Pencader had been residing for a short time. With sadness we learned that she had passed away within a matter of weeks of her 100th birthday. We have very fond memories of her within the branch and also in the community.

It was a pleasure to receive such a heartfelt welcome at Croeso Tremle, Pencader on the 16th December. They had prepared very impressive refreshments for us and we had a lovely time singing carols and then talking to the residents.

We would like to wish you a Happy New Year and extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us and take part in our many and varied fun activities. We usually meet at 7 o’clock on the last Monday of the month.
