You're as old as you feel.


Don’t ever let age put you off doing what you want.

At the age of 69, a d├ębut writer has published a book about life in the early 1950s after his grandchildren persuaded him to tell his story.

Haydn Llewellyn Davies, originally from Dukestown, Tredegar, decided to write about his recollections after years of retelling the stories to his 13 grandchildren.

Always asking questions

Mr Davies spent the past five years compiling his stories into a book, ‘A Year on a Brecon Farm’, which he has published himself. Mr Davies said: “It only came about because I put things down for the grandchildren. They are always asking me questions about my youth.”

The resulting book is a collection of Mr Davies’s memories of life on the farm

Well done, Haydn. Let there be more. I wish you every success.
