Mold Committee held an Afternoon Tea in September to celebrate the life of former Chair, Beryl Powell. 

150 guests, including family and friends of Beryl, gathered at Theatr Clwyd in Mold to remember her hard-work and dedication. Entertainment was provided by several performers, each representing a different aspect of Beryl’s life. 

Pianist Christopher Enston, of St Mary’s Church, welcomed guests with a recital and Isobel Owen, played violin and sang to commemorate Beryl’s time as a teacher at Maes Garmon.  

To represent Beryl’s involvement in the Arts from the Armchair (AFTA) programme, Rita Newman gave a reading titled ‘Beryl Powell: A Jewel in Theatr Clwyd’s Crown’ and Glyn Holywell performed the AFTA song. 

Rounding off the afternoon was St Mary’s Church Choir, who treated guests to a set before Angie Parker sang an arrangement of Beryl’s favourite songs.

The afternoon raised a well-deserved £3,440 with Committee Chair, Sharon Knotts saying:

“It was a lovely afternoon and the perfect way to remember Beryl, it was something she would have been very pleased with.”
