Year End Activities



On November 16th Mr Dean Powell gave us an insight into the life of the actor Glyn Houston .Born in Tonypandy in 1925, he was the younger brother of actor Donald Houston. He really wanted to be a comedian. However, acting roles came along. He appeared in the film The Blue Lamp and comedies such as Are you being served with John Inman and Arthur English. He also featured in a holiday comedy on the " Costa Plonka".

We held a quiz on November 23rd with a series of pictures of famous people, who we recognised but "Oh dear, what is their name"?

Once again Joyce entertained us with her humorous anecdotes at our November 30th meeting and our Autumn session came to an end with a visit from the Amy Britten singers who gave us an enjoyable afternoon, which was rounded off with mince pies.

Finally ,on December 14th, 20 of our members met at the Walston Castle for our Christmas lunch, and Shirley, as usual, provided us with a large collection of prizes for our annual raffle.

We recommence on January 11th with a game of Bingo, followed by our A.G.M. on January 18th Our new programme begins on January 25th with a talk by Mr Peter Finch entitled Old Cardiff.
