CEFN Mawr Historical Society is meeting again this week.

Members enjoyed their second talk of the year, given by Graham Greasley, which was called ‘Following in Their Footsteps’, looking at famous people who have visited the area over the years.

The next meeting will be held on Friday, March 29 at 7pm in the George Edwards Hall, when Dave Jones, Chair of the Fron Male-Voice Choir, will give a talk on the story and achievements of the Choir.

Admission is free to Members and £2 to non-members and guests on the door. Refreshments will be available, and a Grand Raffle will be drawn on the evening.

There is now a new Facebook page dedicated to the Cefn Mawr Historical Society. Please visit it to find the latest news of the Society's programme and activities.

A spokesman for the society added: "The society would like to pay tribute to Rhona Roberts, who died recently.

"Rhona was a founder member, and the Society’s Treasurer until 2017. We offer our condolences to her family at this time."

At the Cefn Mawr and District Museum, the current special exhibition, Paul Smith’s special collection of royal memorabilia, will continue on display until the end of April.

In addition, it hosts a very special collection of nursing medals with supporting photos and documents, put together by Steve Jones.

The Facebook site - Cefn Mawr and District Museum - continues to be well followed, and the museum also has its own website up and running.
