We have enjoyed some interesting meetings in recent months.

Janice Richards told us about her many years working at No. 10 Downing Street. Janice worked with several Prime Ministers during her time there. Her favourite was John Major.

Steve Adams talked to us about his book, “Murder at the Star”. Steve is a journalist, who became editor of the “South Wales Guardian” in 2014. Whilst researching feature ideas for the newspaper, Steve became aware of the unsolved murder of Thomas Thomas, which took place in the Carmarthenshire village of Garnant, in 1921. Steve did a lot of research into the case and discovered new evidence about the suspects. His book reveals the identity of the murderer. Steve’s illustrated talk was very entertaining.

Doug Rowlands entertained us with an illustrated talk about his career at sea. He worked on many different types of ships and travelled all over the world, before retiring to West Wales.

In February our guest was local fitness expert, Joan Venables. We all thoroughly enjoyed the “Ease into Fitness” session and have resolved to follow Joan’s advice, “Use it or lose it!’

We have many more interesting meetings planned for this year:

Tuesday 6th March St David’s Day lunch at the Porth Hotel

Tuesday 10th April Richard Keen, the Ukulele Man

Tuesday 1st May an afternoon visit to Aberglasney Gardens

If you would like to join us at any time, we’d be pleased to see you.

Meetings are held in the Pavilion at 2pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
