There was laughter galore and a walk down Eddie Butler's 'Memory Lane' in St Davids as the former Pontypool, Wales and British Lion showed why he has developed into being a top rugby commentator/pundit on the oval ball game as 70+ delighted guests attended a special night at The Bishops pub.

Organised by pub manager Chris Morgan in conjunction with local fund-raising group the 'Penknife Club', all proceeds went to the 'Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru', whose Hon Secretary John Daniels was in attendance to thank everyone for their support.

Eddie Butler has become an ambassador for Prostate Cymru and as such provided his services free of charge and showed just why he is held in such regard on the guest speakers' circuit with his fascinating stories, superb voice and ability to capture a moment with his mastery of accents.

The opening section of the evening was a chance for compere Bill Carne to ask the sort of questions that others might miss, including one about Eddie's mother's first meeting with the redoubtable Pooler coach Ray Prosser that got the evening off to a flying start.

Bill Carne had also set the tone for the evening as he collected £1 from all the audience before initiating a 'Heads or Tails' game that provided £70 towards the almost £1,000 that was raised for the worthwhile charity.

Another highlight of the opening segment came when Bill 'encouraged' the popular raconteur, commentator, novelist and columnist to read Jim Telfer's speech prior to a Lions' Test Match in South Africa, which really brought the house down!

After an excellent bowl of cawl, bread and cheese during the interval, donated by Chris Morgan and his staff, there were questions galore on a range of topics, all dealt with unflinchingly by Mr Butler, including a couple that other guest speakers might have shunned!

The evening was supported by Bethan Price, the mayor of St Davids, and Rhys Price, the captain of The Saints' rugby team - and was nicely rounded off by an entertaining auction conducted by Les James, the inspiration behind the 'Penknife Club' , which included tickets for a Scarlets' match donated by Saints rugby legend Jack Dudley and a hamper provided by Castell Howell Foods.

Les also presented 'Penknife Club' ties to Eddie Butler and Bill Carne and the evening was nicely rounded off with a special 'Thank you' from John Daniels for all who had made the evening a resounding success.
