Unveiling of the Three Doctors' Plaque

It was decided that as part of our Silver Jubilee a dedicated plaque to the Three Doctors would be erected in the village. Dr Alwyn Humphreys in the recent highly successful Morriston Orpheus Concert in Jerusalem, stated that Resolfen was almost unique in having three musical doctors of that period in Wales.

It is therefore pleasing to announce that the plaque will be unveiled by our Chairman, Mr Gwyn Thomas on Monday, May 4th at 3:30pm. It was also decided that the best way to note the occasion was by a rendition of some of the work of the composers and therefore the United Chapels Choir will be on hand to perform some items. The short ceremony will be followed by a light buffet in the Community Centre.

Members will note that we normally have our Spring excursion on May Day, however it was felt that the unveiling would be an apt substitute to mark a notable year in our own history. Our final speaker for this season will be on Monday May 11th when Mr Martyn Griffiths will speak on "Early Tourists in Neath".
