Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to Avril Cray and fam­ily of Kid­welly. The fam­ily were for­merly Myny­d­dy­gar­reg res­i­dents and well known. Ael­wyn Cray passed away re­cently and was cre­mated on Fri­day, May 3. They had two chil­dren, Meinir and Michael and many other fam­ily mem­bers and friends. We, as vil­lagers, think of them all.

Speedy re­cov­ery is wished to Mar­garet Hughes, of Cheri­ton, who has been a hospi­tal pa­tient. We all wish her a speedy re­turn to bet­ter health. We, as vil­lagers, wish ev­ery­one who is not in the best of health at the mo­ment a speedy re­turn to feel­ing bet­ter in time for the sum­mer weather. Brysi­wch wella.
