Glan-y-Mor, The Knap, Barry
Reunion 12-14 October 2018
Another memorable reunion, thoughtfully crafted by Rosie Haggerty (Fairclough) and Peter & Jan Stein. The GYM reunion took place at the Radisson Blu hotel in central Cardiff.
Five years ago there were 35 of us, this time 42! It was a really special, relaxed, event. Several people came who had never been before. There was a lot of warmth, banter and camaraderie. The spirit of Glan-y-Mor is still very much alive.
The weekend was as follows:
* A get-together in the bar on Friday night.
* A free day on Saturday to explore Cardiff. Most went to Cardiff castle.
* On Saturday night we had a hot buffet in a private suite at the hotel with 70s music, a 70s quiz and entertainment (mostly ourselves).
* Sunday morning saw our usual pilgrimage to the Bridge Cafe (and nearby cafe as the Bridge was full) and the Knap before we made our way home.

Next reunion will be 13-15 October 2023. Time to go:
In memory of Glan-y-Mor, the former UWIST hall of residence and YMCA holiday centre, and in honour of the Gimblett family who ran it from soon after it’s construction in 1932 until it closed in 1979.
