Message from Webmaster
An absolutely amazing turnout for this years event - hoards of people at every location enroute,
perfect weather and a well behaved audience in general. A big thank you to all publicans,
bar staff and helpers for all the hard work executed in 'the background' without whom this event
would be difficult if not impossible to run - that's not forgetting the actual organisers Lopper and
Denise & the rest of the crew.
Visitors came to this years event from as far away as Essex, London, Swindon (most of M4 corridor)
- some were noted as having hired a taxi from Glynneath, West Glam. Requests for photos were also made from
local people who have relatives living in different parts of the world who view the Kenfig website to remind them
of home and their loved ones.
Additonally, many thanks to all those who took part - you provided a photographic
opportunity that we have captured yet again for your viewing. This years event was created using a Macromedia
Flash Interactive Slide-Show Presentation - enjoy the Gambo Race 2005.
