Patron St David.
ONCE again the Loughborough Welsh Society has been remembering St David, the Patron Saint of Wales.
On Thursday, March 1, actually St David's Day, a Celebratory Lunch was held at the Ramada Hotel; where members and friends sat down to a really good meal, followed by a little business, then of course with the singing of the Welsh National Anthem.
Sunday saw the Traditional Service at St Mary's, Nanpantan, where the proceedings were directed by Rev. Andrew Lomax of the Methodist Circuit.
There were Hymns and Readings in English and Welsh, and in his Address Rev. Lomax spoke about Judas Iscariot, one of the 12 Apostles, and was he really deserving of all the bad feelings associated with him. After the Service, Members were able to partake of the usual "Welsh Cakes".
Members were then informed that the next Monthly Meeting will be on April 4th, at the Salvation Army Rooms as usual, when the speaker will be David Pearce.
