sad to report the passing of Colin Jones aka Colin Russell-Jones, formerly of Nantybwch but had lived in San Francisco for many years. Colin was a much loved dance and drama teacher and had also appeared on stage many times - a truly International man he had travelled all over the world and I was fortunate to meet him when he visited Tredegar to see a mutual friend. We kept in contact and his letters were fascinating -full of stories of his travels and work. Despite being long retired he was still in contact with many of his former pupils. Colin sadly passed away in USA this month after a long illness.
