PENSIONERS’ CHAT – On Wednesday, October 16 we were visited by Mr Paul Jewel, who had served as a policeman for over twenty years in Ammanford, most of the time in the C.I.D. He is now attached to the Fraud squad in Carmarthen in a civilian capacity.

He spoke of the numerous frauds and scams so prevalent today, from cold callers both on the telephone, and at the door. His advice was not to engage in any dialogue whatever and certainly do not answer any of their questions. His talk was well informed, well delivered and well received, and he was duly thanked for the time and trouble he took to visit us.

Chair then announced that Gwyneth had visited Daphne Thomas and Eirwyn Jones in Glangwili hospital, who are in the same ward. She reported that they are in good spirits on the road to recovery.

It was then found out that it was the birthday of our chair, Anita. So a rendition of Happy Birthday was sung and best wishes given.

This week the children of Parcyrhun school will entertain us, so please arrive by 1.45pm at the latest.
