We are at it again. Doing good things for our fellow humans as usual. This time it's raising some cash for The Paul Ridd foundation. Paul was a Baglan boy who suffered from learning disabilities due to being starved of oxygen during birth and died as a result of mistakes made by the NHS. The foundation was set up to help people like Paul.

Our spiritual home for the last few years is Tyn Y Twr at Baglan and our Landlady Jayne Nicholls who administers the foundation is Paul’s sister. It is only right therefore that we hold our event at Tyn Y Twr so we have arranged no less than ten top quality artists to entertain you for the night. But we do need you to support us. Please make the effort on the night, which will be 3rd October 2017.

Oh and did I mention that admission will be free. No brainer!

AGM 2017 - 7th March - 7:00pm

Just a gentle reminder dear reader. that our Biennial Annual General Meeting meeting takes place on Tuesday 7th March, alongside our normal Branch meeting. This is really important as, amongst other things, we will be voting for (or against) a new committee to serve us for the next two years.

We will have an interesting and entertaining guest speaker too in the form of Matt Hood. Matt is Equity's assistant Secretary so he knows a thing or two about what happens 'on the inside' in London - so always worth a listen.

To cap it all we will have a professional photographer popping in to record the goings-on.

Shelli, along with our host Jayne, will be organising some tempting tea and coffee along with a healthy dollop of welshcakes and biscuits.

As always, our target this month is another full house on the night. Please pop yourself along and try an make it so!
