Remembering Alun Pope, Nantymoel.

Coety Choir has presented the primary school at Nantymoel with a cup, in memory of the late Alun Pope, who had lived in the community for 92 yrs.

The trophy will be presented annually to the pupil who has contributed most to the life of the school.

Alun Pope’s daughter Mairwen (centre), is pictured at the school, with Coety Choir’s M.D., Eira Paskin and the Choir’s Chairman, Eirianwen Stanford.

It is believed that the cup will be a fitting tribute to Alun, who did so much for his community and who was a faithful member of local choirs, including Cantorion Coety.

Cantorion Coety were invited again this year to join Ogmore Vale Male Voice for their St. David’s Day celebrations. The concert was well attended and the audience and choir enjoyed Welsh Cawl during the interval.

Sad Note:

Unfortunately our colleague Alun Pope, Nantymoel, could not be present.  After a period of debilitating illness, he lost his battle. Alun was a faithful and diligent member of both choirs. He will be sadly missed by all.
