Tales From My Welsh Village A warm, nostalgic novel based around the highly amusing antics of a group of characters in the working class South Wales Valleys in the 1960's. Trefor, landlord of the Plough Inn, never misses the chance to play a practical joke - some of which get quite out of hand! Gravedigger Fred is never far from trouble and can turn an apparently harmless situation into a rip-roaring escapade without even trying, to the hilarity of everyone else in the pub.
This is author Ken Smith's first novel. While some of the stories are entirely fictitious, others are loosely based on the ridiculous exploits of certain members of the pub fraternity in the village of Rhigos.
Ken Smith grew up in Rhigos ( Rhyd y Groes ) where he was a Parish Councillor and then a District Councillor. He now lives in Alberta, Canada, but has retained strong ties with his Welsh village.
From the Wikipedia:- "Rhigos is a village in the north of the Cynon Valley, in the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, South Wales. The population of the community at the 2011 census was 894. For postal purposes it comes under the town of Aberdare, although it is some 7 miles (11 km) from Aberdare town centre, and 2 miles (3.2 km) from Glyn Neath."
