June 14th, in Cwmbran, S Wales..... would there be anyone interested in having a meet on that day?

If so, I am happy to arrange it.


Daff xxx

NOT JUNE 16th... Jax is right... is June 14th... the other is another date that I needed to put in my diary, lol... good start, innit!!

I am now going to start compiling a list of definites/possibles/probables, lol,


Harp Strings
Claire in Wales
Ann of Green Gables (and Teddy is safe, lol)


Howie (but not until after 2pm)


Julie Ann
Karen in the Desert

Now we are closer to the time, everyone will have a better idea of whether or not they can make it!!

The fair starts at 10am, and ends at 4pm

There is a restaurant/cafeteria available at County Hall for snacks and drinks… hours are 12 til 2pm

There is loads of parking space available at the Hall, so no problems there.

Anyone arriving by train. Cwmbran station is about a mile away. I am more than happy to collect/deliver back later, lol

Very near to the station is the shopping centre, which has free parking, for those who would like to have a shopping spree as well!!

I thought it might be nice if we went on from the Fair, to somewhere for a meal/drink/chat? Depending of course on whether you have timetables to keep, buses/trains to catch etc

There are loads of places….. either one of the many cafes/restaurants in the shopping centre, or one of the *all day food* pubs in the area… there are a few good ones, although I’ll have a better idea once I know how many wish to go… one or two of the venues are very small, lol!!

Are you planning to stay overnight? There are a few b&b’s, guest houses, travel and premier lodges in the area.. the closer you get to Newport and Cardiff, the more there are available. I’ll put web links in later, if people need them.

But if i am available that will be cool.

Now that would be great so long as it is not the same date as the Cork meet.

I have someone in Cwmbran I need to see and could link the two but as you know can't plan too far ahead.

MrDaff Report 11 Jan 2008 11:37

Hiya Linda, that'll be great.

If you want to find out more, you might like to pop into this link...

Some people have pm'd me and said they would be interested, too.

MrDaff Report 11 Jan 2008 12:17

Howie, that would be lovely... I'll remind you closer to the time.. I am going anyway. There is also one later in the summer in Swansea, so I shall probably go to that as well...

Queen's official birthday - will it make a difference to travelling?



Susan719813 Report 12 Jan 2008 17:44

Susan withwelshanscesters-sortof


MrDaff Report 12 Jan 2008 17:56

Kath, it would be lovely to meet you, I hope you can make one of them

Taff, the Swansea one is on the Glorious 12th.... 12th of July

Skwirrel, it might if an official bank holiday is called, but I haven't heard anything... last year was the special one, wasn't it (lol, can't remember that far back!!)

I'm not sure, Susan.... I have never been to a Family History Fair.... but I'll do look ups if I can!! I'm nice like that. Even to folk who will not let me have the last word, lol!
