Cr­w­bin Sil­ver Band The band held its own Christ­mas con­cert at Pon­ty­berem Me­mo­rial Hall on De­cem­ber 14. The band un­der mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Craig Roberts per­formed a num­ber of Christ­mas ar­range­ments that were well re­ceived by the au­di­ence. Shar­ing the stage were the pupils of Ys­gol Maes y Gwen­draeth and their tal­ented pupils pro­vided an ex­cel­lent and var­ied pro­gramme of en­ter­tain­ment. The school band, led ad­mirably by Jac­quie Scaife, played nicely, cap­ti­vat­ing the au­di­ence, as did the vo­cal en­sem­ble and se­nior school choir led by mu­sic co-or­di­na­tor Nicky Rod­er­ick – see­ing so many young­sters show­ing their tal­ents on stage is in­deed a credit to Ys­gol Maes y Gwen­draeth. The band would like to thank com­pere Deris Wil­liams, the school’s staff, pro­gramme spon­sors as well as the local com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing the event. Since the con­cert, the band have been busy sup­port­ing carol con­certs or ser­vices at var­i­ous venues in­clud­ing Tum­ble Me­mo­rial Hall, Carmel Apos­tolic Church, Bancf­fos­fe­len, and Cr­w­bin Pub­lic Hall and the Red Lion, Llandy­faelog, in sup­port of Côr Meibion Dyf­fryn Tywi. Then the band has been carolling around Llan­saint, Pon­ty­berem, Bancf­fos­fe­len, Cr­w­bin, Llang­y­n­deyrn and Myny­d­d­cer­rig. You might also have heard mem­bers play­ing at Tesco or Mor­risons su­per­mar­kets Car­marthen. It has been an ex­tremely hec­tic time for the mem­bers but the money raised is the lifeblood of the band. The band would like to thank the local com­mu­ni­ties for their loyal sup­port. This is truly ap­pre­ci­ated. Di­olch yn fawr iawn.
