A good start to the week by Chloe winning the title of Miss Llandrindod!
Charlie came third in the Master Llandrindod
competition too! Pictures to follow.
We had a good turn out again this year.
Something like 13 of us there on the first
weekend! With a few interested possible
new recruits too!
Finally we have made our acting debut. Some of our members have
taken part in filming for a new BBC production
possibly to air later on this year.
The production costume department are
reported to have said how impressed they
were with the standard and authenticity
of the costumes worn by our members. Hopefully
more will come of it.

It is with deep regret and much sadness that the year should start with the
news that Barry Cowles one of our members
from Hull has passed away after recent surgery
in hospital. Our condolences go to his wife
Jacqui and his family. I am told that his
funeral will be very much in the Victorian
style ending very much in the style that
he most enjoyed.
