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.

The morning of Sunday 23rd June dawned bright and sunny however the forecast was not good for the afternoon. The Pavilion Committee had done a super job of preparing the field for the event so that games and other outdoor activities could be held. The Coconut Shy, Clock Golf and Splat the Rat were set up and lines marked out for the sports events.
Parents and children started arriving and games etc. got underway until the rain came down an hour later. A couple of the games could be enjoyed indoors so were taken into the Pavilion. It was such a shame as all who came were prepared to take part in something on the field and be rewarded for their efforts.
The Strawberries and Cream went down well too. The Regeneration Group says a huge thank you to all those individuals who helped make the afternoon such a success, whether they had donated refreshments, cakes, raffle prizes, money or given of their time, we are most grateful. Thanks must also go to the local shops – they are always willing to display a poster and help out when they can.
It was a fun afternoon which will be repeated next year.
