The Society recently held an Autumn Art Competition. Year 6 pupils from the local Primary Schools were invited to submit a painting/drawing depicting Clydach past or present through their eyes. The winning entry would be used as the cover for a forthcoming publication.
The winning entry was from Isabelle Lewis of Clydach Primary and the runner up Emily Hines of St Joseph’s Primary.
The presentation was made by our guest speaker, John Powell before the members at our monthly meeting on Friday 20th October. Our President Ioan Richards was the master of ceremonies. The event was sponsored by Valley Group who provided the winning trophies and certificates and Tesco Llansamlet, Vardre, Glais and Trebanos RFCs who provided financial support for prizes and refreshments at the presentation. Judges were Nesta James (Contemporary Arts Society for Wales), Jules Rymer (local artist) and Geraint Thomas (Senior Reporter South Wales Evening Post).
All entries can be viewed at Clydach Library, thanks to the support of Elizabeth Williams and Mike Richards at the Library.
