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.

Senior Citizens The Mynyddygarreg Senior Citizens held their May meeting on Wednesday, May 1, at Mynyddygarreg Welfare Hall at 2.30pm. Present were members which included the officers Jean Fox (chairperson), Marian Lewis (vice-chairperson), Christine Hughes (treasurer) and Regina Morgan (secretary and savings co-ordinator). Mrs Fox opened the meeting with the Lord’s Prayer and Mrs Morgan read the last month’s notes. Absentees and birthday celebrators were mentioned. A trip was being held on May 7 and times were given for pick-ups. A very interesting talk was given regarding leeches – how they are reared and stored and how they are used especially in hospitals for several kinds of blood illnesses. A video was shown on how the leeches first came into being, used for accidents and illnesses. The speaker was Carl Peters and he was very interesting.
