- I was met by my mum and
we went and bought train tickets from the station, as I'm going to Birmingham
this Saturday. I'm a representative of Quaker Youth Theatre on the committee
for the Leaveners
a Quaker (religious) charity for music and drama in a creative and Quaker
context. It is a committee meeting to discuss projects, finances, new posts
etc. I was voted on the committee as one of three young Quaker representatives
at a re-union met last year. I've been going to Quaker meeting since I was
very young - about 3 - with my parents, and although I do not have any strong
religious beliefs, I do agree with their core values of non-violence, that
there is goodness or good in everyone and in equality and respect for all.
The youth events are lots of fun, and I enjoy dance so going on Leaveners
events is great.
- Met a friend in town who brought us up to
date on his new venture at Craig Y Nos Castle - putting on operas in the castle's
beautiful old theatre on a regular basis.
- As Chairman of Llangynidr Local History Society
I was acting as site manager of an archaeological investigation in the supposed
medieval village of Llangynidr - on Pesondy field.
September 24th was the penultimate
day of a 3 ½ week dig, authorised by
CADW and the National
My role was to facilitate the work by co-ordinating
resources - personnel and equipment - as well as being actively involved in
trowel work; washing labelling and bagging artefacts found on site and subsequently
restoring the excavated soil and turf at the end of the process. In the course
of the day all of the above were carried out.
