Margarette Golding Plaque Unveiled

So I contacted Katharine Dobson District 18 secretary and asked if I could attend. She was delighted and sent me all the details. The plaque made of welsh slate  was to be unveiled by the local M.P Liz Saville Roberts at 10.15am on Friday 12th May in Encil Gardens Church Street Blaenau Festiniog


 
The day dawned chilly and very wet as I drove from my brother’s home in Shropshire the rain persisted all the way and for the rest of the day but the welcome I received and the fellowship gained was well worth the journey. Because of the weather it was decided to  unveil the plaque and then drive down to Llechwedd slate quarry who were providing refreshments and the speeches could then be in the dry!
Association Editor Enid Law represented the Association she is in fact a member of the nearby Llangollen Club,  several  District 18 officers and members were present and a goodly number of the local Porthmadog Club.
On a personal note I met a lady from Llangollen who was at my Grammar School in Caernarfon albeit 5 years after me but we had a long chat about all the teachers we remembered.
Having travelled a long way from Oadby I am so glad I was present to witness this mark of respect to a lady who gave so much to Inner Wheel
 
In the words of Max Boyce” I was there”
