How many of us can boast having two parties for the same birthday ?? Well Robin can.


There aren’t many of us who are given two parties for one birthday.

However Robin Davies did; and on Saturday night we enjoyed a surprise party for him at our local Rugby Club organised by wife Sheila!!

What a brilliant night was had by all with a local folk band and compere Dewi Pws which won’t anything to most of you but he is a well known Welsh celebrity/comedian.

Robin’s face as he walked into the club was indeed a picture of total surprise and shock !! Brilliant !!!!

A wonderful night.



Yesterday (Sunday) the garage was decorated (by myself and Dai)ready for another surprise barbecue for the birthday boy.


Robin arrived this time again in total srprise ; I never knew we could all be so sneaky ha ha!! However it was worth it just to see that look of total shock and disbelief on his face once more.

Dave has worked at Robins for over twenty years and still does for six days a week at the grand age of eighty-four years old.

A true example to us all !!



Happy Birthday Robin.


We all know Robin

From far and wide.

He tells his jokes

As in his taxi we ride.


We remember them all

But can’t always repeat.

At least not in this poem

Or I may lose my seat !!


From humble beginnings

His business did grow.

Today he stands tall

The star of the show.


Three cheers for Robin

Hip hip hip hooray.

How the drinks flowed

For the man of the day.
