For many years Peter was an active member and volunteer at Taffs Well RFC. He cherished his role as 1st XV kit man and he travelled to all games and also on Club toursPeter was so proud to be awarded Clubman of the Year in recognition of all his efforts.


Peter was an enduring figure at all our Club social events and occasions and who will ever forget his impersonation of the singer Shaking Stevens to the music of Behind the Green Door. He made so many friends within the Club and with the teamsthat we played.
