The district is in for a treat shortly when the Gwauncaegurwen Dramatic Society will perform "Aeres Maesy- felin" in aid of the local S. and S. Fund. This drama has been quite s phenomenal success lately, and should not on any account be missed. A choir has been formed at Lower Cwmtwrch with a view of entering tho competition in the chief choral contest at Jerusalem Eisteddfod, Ystalyfera. The need has been felt at Cwmtwrch for many years of an institute, com- prising a hall, library, etc. An informal meeting to discuss the matter was held at Bethel on Sunday, when it was de- cided that a further meeting be held at Beulah Vestry on Saturday even- ing (March 2) at 6 o'clock, and that notices be sent to the churches at Rhiwfawr, Bryn Seion, Ebenezer, Beulah, Bethel and Bethania, inviting their co-operation. It is hoped the dis- trict will be well represented at the meeting.
