A Long Time For Me - a Memory of Maesteg.
I was born in Maesteg in 1943, and lived in Station Hill, which was also known as Butlers Hill to some. I went to Plasnewydd School, and then to Llwynderw. My neighbours were the Charles's and Peggy and Jim Wills, whose son Melville was my friend. My father, Kenneth Kennedy, died after a coronary on Xmas eve 1964 in Maesteg Rugby Club (7777); he was well respected. It has been a long time since I was back home, as I now live in England but I shall always remember my childhood days, as well as my 1st job in Cwmdu Colliery. Such memories are priceless and eternal.
