A nostalgic visit


It was a return to the past for David Lampard when he came for tea at the Penrallt Hotel in Aberporth last week. This was Mr Lampard’s first visit back to the Penrallt since it was his beloved home in the 1940s and 50s.

His mother, Gladys, was the founder of the Penrallt school based in the house, which taught practical skills to youngsters from the South Wales valleys in the late 1930s. The school – which had a sister organisation in Miskin – was groundbreaking for the time.

“My mother’s family made their money from coal and this was her way of repaying the families that mined for them,” said Mr Lampard, who now lives near Llandovery.

The school closed during World War II and his mother married and raised her family in the house.

He has fond memories of his life at the Penrallt – his sister Charlotte was born in one of the bedrooms upstairs. Coming back here was very nostalgic for David.

“I remember it being very cold – I am delighted with how the new owners have made it so warm and welcoming as a hotel,” he said.
