Sad News

It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Val Aston passed away yesterday (19th October) after a long battle with cancer.  

Mick, John and Val at the 2008 Castles

Val was a long standing member of the club filling many roles -  former club secretary, Welsh Castles timing stalwart, entry taker for races such as Old Father Time and Gwent League results assistant amongst others.  Val wore many hats, she was a wife, mother, grandmother, runner and friend none of which do justice to such an intelligent, charming and caring woman. 

Our thoughts are with Jeff, the family and the many friends that Val made not only in the club and across the years, but across the world too. 

Val’s funeral will be on Thursday 3rd November at the Wenallt Chapel in Thornhill at 1445, followed by afternoon tea at The New House, Thornhill.
