At the AGM it was decided that the Laugharne Festival in 2012 will go back to how it was in the beginning and stage a production of Under Mik Wood for three nights.The next meeting of the Festival Committee will be on Ash Wednesday, 9th March at 7.00pm (Fern Hill Orchard) It is sad regret that we mention Miss Gleed who has died. Miss Gleed was one of the founders of Laugharne Festival and for many years a valued trustee. When the committee took over custodianship of theCors Playing Field, it was full of stones, but local children cleared them and Miss Gleed provided the reward in the shape of a large jar of sweets. In recent years, Miss Gleed was unable to take an active part, but was full of encouragement, which included allowing the committee to decorate the window, formerly Gleed the Butchers, to promote thefestival and events. The final request was that any donations to be made to Laugharne Festival for the upkeep of the Cors Playing Field. The next Laugharne Festival will take place in 2012, but each yearthe committee like to offer something interesting, but on a smaller scale for the residents and visitors.Many thanks to all our supporters in 2010 who turned out in force for a wonder performance of Burton by Rhodri Miles, special thanks to allthe committee members who worked so hard to the make the occasion a success, thanks to Elinor and Rob for stepping in to sort out the technical problems with sound and lighting. A special mention for Martha who worked so hard getting raffle prizes and selling tickets.
