Number 9, July 1939
TWO YEARS IN CAERLEON
On July 10th,
1937, we arrived at Cambria House, where we have been so well
treated. Here, we have learned so many things. It is here that
we have learned all the English we know, and we have learned something
of carpentry and many other things.
On May 20th, 1937, we set sail for England. After three
days on the sea, during which we all got sea-sick, we arrived
at Southampton where we lived for two months in tents. Then, on
July 10th, they brought us here to Cambria House.
It is here that the football team was organised, that played successfully
against champion players from Newport schools, and played a Cardiff
team that had won the Seagre Cup.
It is here too, that the concert party was organised, that gave
a number of concerts last winter, and will also give several concerts
in the open air this summer. The money that is raised through
these football matches and concerts goes towards the maintenance
of the home.
In Cambria House, the Cambria House Journal was founded, and such
was the interest shown in the articles it contained, that it became
popular throughout Wales, and a part of England. This could not
have come about but for the good salesmen we have found, and to
whom we are very grateful.
We have been nearly all over South Wales, where we have had some
very good times. What we like most is the large number of concerts
