Llanteg Hall held a family B.B.Q. to mark its 60th anniversary this year. Sunday 8th June was a gloriously hot day and we were delighted that well over 100 people dragged themselves away from the beach or their gardens to join us for a very friendly evening.
The B.B.Q. was done by Andrew Rees of Narberth and prepared by Geraint
and Rebecca, with salads and puddings being provided at the Hall by the
Committee. We were entertained by the very fitting music of the
Freewheelers – which was very evocative of the 1940s and also not too
loud so as to prevent all the reminiscing that was going on. The Hall
was decorated in 1940s fashion and there were some displays of events
held at the Hall and the renovations that have taken place over the
It was good to see families present who have been connected with the
Hall since it first opened with a grand dance on 14th January 1948 and
also past Llanteg W.I. members returning to where they had spent so many
hours practicing for their concerts and dramas.
A raffle was held, which, along with ‘normal’ prizes, also had novelty
items included which replicated the items from the original 1948 raffle
which had been:- Goose, Rhode Island Red Cockerel, Pair of Laying Ducks,
One Guinea, Dressed Chicken, 2 Pairs of Rabbits (which had been given
by Geoffrey James) and 50 Cigarettes.
Chairman of Amroth Community Council, Councillor John James, gave a
brief address on the many varied activities that had taken place in the
Hall over its 60 year history and also highlighted the fact that the
Hall is now probably used more than ever and is the focal point of the
village – and long may it continue.
