Oakdale Miners Institute

Posted by Picasa
There was always something going on at the 'stute' as they used to call it. Sarah's brothers used to play billiards there and borrow books from the library. The Institute had been built by the Miners Union, they had collected money every week, and asked rich men in the area to help. The owners of the pits had agreed to collect the money every week from the miners' wages. This made it much easier for the Union.The Institute was run by a committee of men who were elected by the miners. It was used for all sorts of things apart from entertainments. Meetings were held there, strike pay was paid out there, and if the men wanted to see the miners' agent about any union problem they could visit his office in the building. The Institute was often the biggest building in the village.

Cycling weekend


This is the campsite at The Castle Inn Pengenffordd our base for the weekend. Despite the continious rain 15 people turned up and we managed two good days of cycling and two good evenings of fun, beer and food. This site gives you an idea of the countryside around where we stayed.

I will survive


Posted by Picasa
I will survive as long as
I know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

Where has all the hair gone?
Gone with age.
Still drinking, but this time its cups of tea.
The picture was taken at a cafe stop whilst out cycling.
