Not sure what to say about this photo other than it shows our members Phil Elliott and Richard Evans who are currently on a golfing trip to turkey. I won't say who sent it. We need some captions please, email them to me at and I will publish the best here.

Ruth Madoc - As everyone knows, our patron has been touring with the show Calendar Girls. Tragically Ruth fell on stage while warming up prior to the show in Dublin last week. Ruth has broken her right hip and femur in three places, she had an operation on Friday 1st February to pin the breaks. She is currently still in hospital in Dublin and is hoping to be transferred to Morriston hospital next Monday (11th February).

I'm sure we all wish Ruth a speedy recovery and in the meantime a well deserved rest while John looks after her

Update: Ruth has been transferred to Morriston Hospital a couple of days later than hoped but at least she is now back in the country and hopefully will be back in her home soon. On February 20th Ruth was discharged from Morriston Hospital and is now back home.

Adrian Gregory - Adrian's daughter Sara Gregory is going from strength to strength in her acting career as she takes a major role in the production 'Home I'm Darling' which was a huge sellout success during it's run at the National Theatre. The production has now moved to the West End at the Duke of York Theatre.

If anyone is in London and wants an evening at the theatre this show could be for you. Don't take my word for it read the review in What's on Stage:

If you have difficulty is booking tickets, have a word with Adrian who may be able to help.

Doberman - I was sent the photo below by one of our members who I shalln't name (KM)

"Hello, Doberman Cabs, can I help you? What do you mean Colin's marked my card?"

" I can do Cimla to Swansea Bay return for £30 but don’t keep on about my handicap"








Rod Woodward - After Rod's outstanding return performance on the Royal Variety Show, he is embarking on a tour. I've already got my tickets for Blackwood, I hope that the other Wedges can get to see hime at one of the venues listed below.
