Dear Member

Our flag is at half-mast….
It is with sadness to note that our flag was at half-mast this week in remembrance of one of our long standing members Mr Bill Hodge who sadly passed away on Saturday 15th December 2018.  Some seniors’ colleagues have this week been reflecting on Bill’s life recalling that he had also been a member at Porthcawl Golf Club and had kept the Pen-y-Bont Inn, Llanmynydd and The Half Way, Llandeilo Road for some time before retiring to Alicante, Spain. Bill returned to Carmarthenshire and lived near his son Wayne in Gorslas.  Our thoughts and condolences are with Bill’s family and friends.
