A CENTENARY celebration in memory of Clunderwen’s aviation pioneers will take place at the village’s community hall this weekend.

One hundred years ago this month the James Brothers, the first Pembrokeshire men to build and fly their own aircraft, took off from Brynhyfryd fields in their wood and canvas plane.

To celebrate the achievement of these magnificent men in their flying machine, Clunderwen Community Forum is hosting a celebration weekend.

There’ll be paper aeroplane flying, Edwardian playground games, exhibitions of children’s work, period costumes and Clunderwen’s heritage, and the unveiling of the James Brothers WI embroidery.

A short film recreating their flight paths will also be shown, as well as a community coffee morning.

Pupils from Ysgol Brynconin will also be sent back in time to 1913, spending the day in Edwardian costume and discovering what it was like to live and go to school in Edwardian times.

The exhibition will open at 3pm on Friday, September 20, and run until 1pm Sunday, September 22. Entry is free and refreshments will be available, and everyone is invited to celebrate the pair’s pioneering spirit.
