Betty and Llewellyn Jenkins of Glan Ynys, Colwinston were kind and generous. Both much travelled, they had a house full of interesting items from their journeys. As young children we were captivated by many of these, not least the ostrich egg. They lived over the road from us and our visits to them were always met with warmth and interest. Their large garden held many adventures. Llewellyn had been a merchant naval engineering officer and Betty a commercial secretary. They both became lecturers at Port Talbot Technical College. Llewellyn often gave illustrated talks on their travels and would regularly write to the various local newspapers with comments about the decline of our merchant fleet. He was a keen gardener and took great pride in developing different parts of the garden. Especially the pond. Betty loved her cats. We miss them but were very lucky to have known them. Sian and Ian
