Gareth Mason stars on Graham Norton

Graham MasonGareth Mason from Barry was recently the star on the Graham Norton show.  Even though he’s a “big lad” he does some amazing dancing to the James Bond theme.

There was also a local piece in the local Barry newspaper where Gareth praised his old school St Richard Gwyn in Barry and specifically his drama teacher Audrey Sparks.  It’s really heartening to see a prospective South Wales star praising his old school and his teacher!

Go for it Gareth, and well done Mrs Sparks!!!!

Here’s Gareth’s appearance on Youtube –

Blue Anchor Pub, Aberthaw damaged by fire again

Blue Anchor in 2004

Unfortunately the Blue Anchor Inn in East Aberthaw has caught fire again last weekend.

This is a great local pub with a huge amount of character.   The building dates from 1380.  It has caught fire a number of times in its history – a thatched roof and log fires don’t mix very well 🙂
