Gareth 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 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 🙂

A classic from the BBC News site today. The sign pictured left was erected in Swansea. The Welsh translation translates back as “I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated.”
A classic copy and paste error. 🙂
