Lynnette and John met at Cwrt Sart School and were together on and off for a while. Lynette joined the army when she was 17 years old and spent 3 years in the service. Lynnette came home on leave for a week, aged 20, John proposed and they married the same week.
Lynnette’s mother was the owner of Shepherd’s Fish and Chip Shop in the Melyn and made 5 bridesmaids dresses in a few days. Lynnette and John got married at Penny Brick Church, Melyn. Consequently the church has always been known locally as “Penny Brick”. The church became Neath Methodist Church in 1971, following amalgamation with the nearby Neath Wesley Methodist Church.
Lynnette and John held their reception in The Glamorgan Public House, Melyn.
They have had many happy years together and enjoy caravanning and motorbiking.
