ELFED OWEN

A message from David Owen

the son of Elfed Owen.

Elfed Owen has been a member of the Chelmsford Welsh Society for many years.

I am writing to inform you of the sad news that my father passed away on Monday 16th August at the age of 85.  He died peacefully with the close family by his side in a care home in Mobberley, Cheshire, where along with his wife Eileen had moved recently to be closer to family.

I know my father thoroughly enjoyed coming to the Chelmsford Welsh Society meetings, concerts and functions on a regular basis up to the time he had a stroke in September 2018 and subsequent ill-health.  In particular, I recall the work he did to provide a presentation to the members on family history research some years ago.  His work on his Welsh family connections dating back to the middle ages has left a wonderful legacy for our family.

 

My father’s funeral will be held at Macclesfield Crematorium in Cheshire on

2nd September at 2.45pm

 

NEW MEMBERS

We have had several requests for membership since the pandemic started over a year ago.

Those interested would be most welcome to attend our first meeting of the 2021-2022 season which we anticipate will start on Wednesday 22nd September providing all restrictions (if any) are complied with. Come along and meet us. We anticipate this will be an evening with Mike Price showing excerpts from past Eisteddfodau.

We have secured the use of the Cathedral car park in Waterloo Lane. 

The car park has raising bollards at the entrance and a code number will be required to allow you to exit. This will be given during the meeting.

Membership forms will be available for 2021-2022 at this meeting and on the website
