Those attending Troed-y-rhiw Local History Forum last week were treated to an excellent presentation by local historian Carl Llewellyn. He shared the results of his research into ‘Troedyrhiw Gleemen’ a successful singing group that were active, under various names, from the 1920’s up to WW2. The talk covered some of the personalities that were associated with the Gleemen; places where they had performed, including the Royal Yacht, and included historic film footage and sound recordings.
In addition to the talk a collection of interesting items brought in at previous meetings was on display. These included historic photographs of Troedyrhiw, the membership roll of Mount Zion Chapel 1886-1910, Mount Zion WW1 Roll of Honour.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all.
