Click here to see our plan for 2019 events and book now for our next event – The St David’s Day Dinner on Friday March 1st at Harewood Downs Golf Club. This year our speaker will be Tudor Wyn Owen, a notable Welshman and raconteur. Originally from the Cynon Valley, he has recently retired as a Circuit Judge in London.

Burn’s Night (25th January) saw Jonathan Pegler host another of his cryptic Quiz Evenings. Six teams of six battled it out, the only respite being the fish and chips supper. Amongst other topics, we were tested on our knowledge of old advertising slogans and the First World War. At the end of the evening, the winners were announced and questions were asked – was it a fix?

Sunday 9th December saw us in Christmas mood, with carols and nibbles at Bill & Sue Jones’s home.
