ON Friday last I attended a concert in the Lesser Hall of the Miners Institute in Newbridge, given by local professional artist Richard Beavis (most ably assisted by two young local ladies, who will go far).

This was a fundraising event towards ‘The Cause’ – The Memo. This cause is now apparently eleven years on. Mr Beavis has supported the cause from the beginning. May I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who had helped in whatever way, financially or in a volunteer capacity to help the cause. Long may it continue.

I am sure many others would wish to join me in thanking them and look forward to the re-opening of the main auditorium and dance hall.
