Llangefni Rugby Club


Alun Griffiths (Alun Manweb)


This year the Rugby Club has lost three of its stalwarts – two former presidents - and this week one of its quiet benefactors Alun Griffiths, Alun Manweb to his friends.

Alun was introduced to the Club by Keith Powell when they were both working for Manweb. He was very active at the old club house and if any work needed doing Alun would be available. He was responsible for numerous fund-raising activities e.g. tug of war, fireworks, bingo etc. He voluntarily worked behind the bar, collected gate money before home matches and supported the Club by travelling to away games. Dafydd Lloyd said that during his chairship of the Club he had worked closely with Alun and he appreciated his help, advice and friensdship.

Every club needs a volunteer such as Alun – an individual who works quietly but effectively in the background but who achieves much.

Clwb Rygbi Llangefni sympathizes with Alun’s family and thanks him for his contribution.

The private committal service will be held this Saturday 3 October at 11.00 at the Church at Iscraig. Those wishing to pay tribute can go to the cemetary.
