YMCA logo

The Morgan family were keen supporters of local initiatives for the youth of Newport. In 1919 Godfrey Morgan had offered land to the YMCA in Bassaleg for use as a sports filed, and the Tredegar Estate Office had made arrangements with the YMCA to purchase a suitable war surplice hut for a pavilion. In his book ‘The History and Diary of the Newport YMCA. 1869 to 1990’, (ISBN 0 907143 16 4), Ernest J.Bakewell, available from Newport Reference Library, he reflects on the work of the YMCA. In this letter written by Courtenay Morgan, Lord Tredegar – Courtenay is appealing for funds for the organisation.
