80th Birth­day: Many con­grat­u­la­tions to a spe­cial line danc­ing friend Maria Evans who at­tained her 80th birth­day on Oc­to­ber 8. Per­haps she should have been named hur­ri­cane Maria as she is al­ways hur­ry­ing about, busy cook­ing scrump­tious cakes and tasty meals for her fam­ily, es­pe­cially her three grand­chil­dren. She en­joys lots of hol­i­days,keeps fit walk­ing and danc­ing, is al­ways full of wicked fun and will give a help­ing hand to any­one who needs it. She is a mem­ber of St Mary’s RC church and was a great help as a vol­un­teer with the youngest pupils at St Mary’s pri­mary for many years.

Barbara Sher­wood, line danc­ing in­struc­tor or­gan­ised a sur­prise party on Oc­to­ber 6 at the Church Hall and on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7 her daugh­ters Jackie and Teresa or­gan­ised yet an­other sur­prise party with lots of fam­ily and friends in at­ten­dance at The Ma­son Arms, Bryncethin which ev­ery­one en­joyed.

Maria who nor­mally prefers to make a fuss for oth­ers rather than her­self thor­oughly en­joyed the limelight. She may be in her se­nior years but is cer­tainly young at heart and her age is just a num­ber. Best Wishes for many more birth­days to this lovely lady. Macmil­lan Cof­fee Morn­ing: Many thanks to all those who at­tended Elaine Beer’s re­cent Cof­fee Morn­ing at Laleston vicarage when £383 was raised.
