Date For Your Diary! Carmarthen Harriers Annual Dinner & Awards Evening

Carmarthen & District Harriers Athletics Club will be holding its annual Dinner & Awards Evening in 2019 on SATURDAY EVENING 12TH OCTOBER at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel, Spilman Street, Carmarthen.


An invite is extended to all club members, families and friends at this year's dinner in the heart of Carmarthen.

It is the only event in the year where the club can all meet to celebrate the successes of the club and its members during the year, so all members are asked to make every effort to attend.

The guest speaker for this year's occasion will be TBC. 

The club celebrated 70 years in 2018 having started in 1948 and a special evening was held at the Ivy Bush Hotel in November 2018, with guests Dewi Griffiths, Josh Griffiths, Jake Heyward, Claire Williams and Caryl Jones. Having competed since young ages for their local club, Welsh Schools, Wales and by now Great Britain in some of the biggest competitions in the world, it was great to hear their interesting stories and how they have developed into what they are now. The five took part in an inspiring question and answer session, led by Edward Morgan.



It was when RB Evans was the Chairman between the period 1948 and 1981 before current President Dr Hedydd Davies took over from 1981 to 2018. The Ivy Bush has been our destination for the past eight years, having seen the first ever dinner take place a few minutes up the road at the Boars Head in Lammas Street, Carmarthen.

In attendance on the evening last November included Peter Hughes-Griffiths (Carmarthenshire County Council Executive Board Member for Sport and Leisure); Emlyn Schiavone (Mayor of Carmarthen); Mansel Charles (Chair of Carmarthenshire County Council) and his consort, Bethan Charles-Davies.

Awards to be presented on the evening include Welsh Champion and International, Richard Wyer Throws Award, Club Achievement Award, Club Service Award, Ernie Jones Memorial Award, J Eirwyn Walters Award, RB Evans Award and much more. Those to receive awards will be discussed at an upcoming committee meeting.

More details will follow in the coming month, but in the meantime, put the date in your diaries and keep checking for all the information that you need and how you can book your places for the evening.
