Clwb Hamd­den At their June gath­er­ing in the Bancf­fos­fe­len and Cr­w­bin Hall leisure club mem­bers were thanked by for­mer chair­man Cy Rees for sur­pris­ing him with a Halen y Ddear plate, those who spoke and the S4C pro­duc­tion crew for their pro­fes­sion­al­ism on the night. The guest speaker was noted tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter Tweli Grif­fiths. He sup­plied an en­gag­ing and amus­ing ac­count of his 40 years nu­mer­ous news sto­ries. The Ethiopian famine of the mid-1980s left a deep im­pres­sion on him and made sev­eral vis­its to the stricken people of that African na­tion. He high­lighted meet­ing Cuba’s Ra­mon Cas­tro, Fi­del’s brother, and ex-Libyan dic­ta­tor Gaddaffi. On the lighter side Mr Grif­fiths re­vealed his life­long pas­sion for the mys­te­ri­ous world of magic; per­form­ing sev­eral tricks for the mem­bers that evening. He was given a vote of thanks for his pre­sen­ta­tion by Anne Langabeer, club chair­man, which was ac­com­pa­nied by rap­tur­ous ap­plause. Af­ter­wards all par­took of light re­fresh­ments.

On June 20 mem­bers em­barked on their first day trip of the year with a visit to Here­ford­shire’s Ross-on-Wye in­clud­ing The La­bels out­let store.

Thanks were given to trip or­gan­iser Dorothy Jones. At July’s gath­er­ing mem­bers will hear Maren Hamer dis­cussing Friends Against Scams.
