100th birthday celebration at Llanelli care home


A well known former Llanelli landlady has celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends.
On Wednesday Mrs Nesta Williams enjoyed a tea party at Y Bwthyn care home in Bigyn, Llanelli, where she has lived since 2007.
She has two daughters Anne and Joan, two grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Mrs Williams was the landlady of the Bull Inn in Anne Street, Llanelli, in the 1950s and 1960s and her late first husband was one of the first people in Wales to open a boxing gym for youngsters.
Y Bwthyn manager Heike Clarke said Mrs Williams was quite a character.
“She has been here a long time and is part of our family at Y Bwthyn,” she added.
Mrs Williams’ daughter Anne Obern said: “My mother’s first marriage was to my father Emlyn Rees who was one of the first to open a boxing gym above the Mansel pub and had three Welsh Champions. He died when he was 46.
“My mother worked in service for Mr Davies the Magistrates Clerk and went to work for the brewery. They were asked if they would like take the licence for the Bull. They ran it together and then when my father died she kept it on for a further five years. She was a very good landlady.
“My mother has good health and can go back in her memory. She can answer you anything about Llanelli.”
