Ystrad Boys & Girls Club - a Memory of Ystrad Mynach.
In the early ninties my son Dewi started going to the Boys Club as it was. Unknown to me and some of the other parents who took their children there the leader Mrs Hammond was coming to the end of her time there (she had been leader for many generations). As a group of parents we suddenly found ourselves without any management or leadership when she left. We suddenly had to either pick up the reines or it would close. There was a group of us which included Tony Honneywell, Ken Pritchard, Tony & Tommy Greenaway, Gary Field, Chris Lewis and myself. Gary ended up as chairman and I (dont quite know how) ended up as club leader. There started an amazing three years. I learnt on my feet Youth Work and during that time got girls involved in the club, the club went on trips to Germany Ireland, Scotland and Bolton where hundreds of young people from the Ystrad Mynach area had a great time and we used the area of sports including football, netball, karate, athletics as well as outdoor persuits in giving these young people a good experience in youth work. It would be good to see any one of those young people post stuff on here
