A Letter to the Editor

Dear George,

Reference the 'official' answers to the "Discover the Village" competition:-

There are 3 thatched cottages - Porthkerry was omitted.

A Welshman doesn't now live at Ty Hapus (it means Happy House); presumably one did at some time before Sheila Osgood.

A Welshman (that's me) does live at Porthkerry (it means Stone Harbour) which is the name of a hamlet between Barri (Barry) and Llanilltud Fawr (Llantwit Major) in South Glamorgan.

As they are 'official' answers, I think they should be correct if not 'right'!!!

Diolch yn fawr!

Russen Thomas
