My first post here as branch Secretary is a rather unfortunate one. It is to inform our branch and Society members of the death of Don Robinson.
It is with sadness that we record the death of a long-time member of the EV & North Gwent branch.
Don was born and raised in Nantyglo, something of which he was very proud, and his humble beginnings gave him a sense of satisfaction which he recorded in one of his poems, entitled “Two Up and Two Down”. A faithful member of Brynmawr Operatic Society and the former proprietor of the very successful “Marigold” costumier business, Don could be relied upon for an amusing anecdote or a pithy comment. Articulate, widely travelled, the creator of delightful poetry, and always immaculate in appearance, Don was a witty and entertaining companion. His decline in mind and body has been a great source of sorrow to all who knew him and he will be greatly missed at branch meetings.
