Lord Griffiths of Burry Port gave a very interesting speech following a school reunion lunch at the Diplomat Hotel on the 1st of April.
Using an old school photograph as a point of reference Lord Griffiths recalled the kindness of his classmates towards him as a young boy being brought up by his mother in abject poverty.
Lord Griffiths recalled the kindness of teachers who he said were aware that his father had left the family home.
Painting a picture of difficult times Lord Griffiths said that he had worn his friend’s castoffs to school and had not eaten meat at home until he was sixteen because they could not afford it.
