THE president Judy Belli welcomed everyone and reminded them that next year is the 60th anniversary of the first Gilwern Women’s Institute. A celebration is now being considered in the form of a garden tea party with members dressed in 1940s style, i.e. the New Look, as 1949 was the year that Christian Dior’s New Look took off as the war years were well and truly over.

Finley Ellis-Hall is a beautiful little boy who has been struck down with a very complicated case of child cancer and leukaemia, and who desperately needs treatment for the disease. Unfortunately, the NHS has been unable to provide the necessary treatment to cure him. His family have been forced to make global enquiries to facilitate the treatment and the only place in the world is China. The cost of the treatment for him, together with the travel and accommodation costs, will be well in excess of £70,000. His parents and friends have launched an appeal throughout Wales to run events that will hopefully raise the necessary cash to pay for the overall costs. One such event was held last Friday, July 25, at the Underwood Social Club, when the celebrated Caldicot Male Voice Choir agreed to perform a short concert within a night of events.
