Nantymoel heritage event
Our #CLUBFOCUS coordinator Cathryn Evans organised a heritage event at Nantymoel Boys’ and Girls’ Club on Thursday 15 October. Between 5 and 7 pm visitors could take a look at old documents and pictures about Nantymoel and also the local history society joined the exhibition.
The highlight of the event was Lynn “The Leap” Davies who won the Gold medal in Long jump during the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1964. He started his sport career as a member of the Boys and Girls Club. The young people of the club had the possibility to interview him and take pictures and videos of the event. Towards the end of the evening, Lynn Davies got presented an award in honour to his achievement at the Olympic Games which is now more than 50 years ago.
