Again this year we were invited by The Friends Of Penllergare to help raise funds for the restoration and upkeep of Valley Woods and to get the Christmas season really under way. St. David’s church in Penllergaer was bursting at the seams, with all tickets sold in advance for what is becoming an annual event in the village.
We were conducted by Helen Wyn and accompanied by Hywel Evans. we sang mostly seasonal songs, with Huw Roberts the soloist in
O Gymru, Anfonaf Angel and Brenin y Sêr.
The concert also included Carey Beor and Julian Quirk who sang and played Guitar and Mandolin. Also joining them was  our very own Stuart Loosemore who played Bass Guitar. Their first two songs were River and Monkey-Town and second session appropriate for the season I believe in Father Christmas and Stop the Cavalry.
Our Secretary Robert Harwood compered the evening and encouraged the audience to join in all the carols although he was feeling a
little “Tents”.
It was a wonderful lead-in to Christmas week, and we thank The Friends of Pellergare for the refreshments in the Llewelyn Hall after the concert. Why not take a stroll through the woods to blow away cobwebs during the holiday period? Their coffee shop will sustain you!
