EDITORIAL
The Gwent Local History Council had a successful autumn
programme, including a one day school and the Annual General Meeting.
The day school was held at Abergavenny and well organised by the
Abergavenny Local History Society. Gwyn Jones gave an illustrated
lecture on his research subject of early Abergavenny. After lunch the large
gathering met in the Church to study the magnificent tombs, and was then
split into smaller groups for the guided walk around the town. This was
very thoughtfully arranged, with an expert from the Abergavenny Local
History Society at each location to point out the interesting features. A
most informative and enjoyable day.
The Annual General Meeting held at Raglan in November was quite well
attended. An interesting talk was given by Mr. Johnathan Parkhouse, on
the work of the Glamorgan and Gwent Archaeological Trust.
The Gwent Local History Council held a special meeting at the end of
November to discuss the Gwent Local History Award. Unfortunately no
entries suitable for the Award were received in 1985: but a medallion has
been designed and struck by Mr. Kenneth Budd and it is hoped that this
can be awarded during 1985. Nominations for the Award will only be
accepted from Members of the Council, so would everyone please make
sure that any suitable entries are brought to the attention of Council
Members through their own local history societies, before the 30th June.
