Blue Plaque Unveiling
Saturday 19th October 2019, 14:00 - 15:00
Côr Meibion Morlais will be performing at the Blue Plaque unveiling in honour of Glyn James (26 March 1922 – 4th December 2010).
This Blue Plaque is dedicated to the memory of Glyn James and will be unveiled at 2pm on Saturday 19 October at 9 Darran Terrace, Ferndale.
Glyn was a Plaid Cymru County Councillor and Borough Councillor for Ferndale for over 25 years, and was Mayor of Rhondda in 1985-86 as well as Leader of the Plaid Cymru Group on Glamorgan, later Mid Glamorgan County Council. He was acknowledged as a pleasantly eccentric and indefatigable hard worker for the community he served: one of his greatest achievements was to raise money for an Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (YAG) Laser for the treatment of glaucoma at East Glamorgan Hospital, a vital piece of kit in a mining region where glaucoma was prevalent but which the NHS had been unable to fund.
Glyn was also a member of the Gorsedd of Bards, writing under the name of Glyn Rhondda. His widow, Hawys, was one of our featured concert soloists for many years.
