Special guests were Andrew Lloyd-Hughes (West Wales regional co-ordinator from Athletics Wales) and Bill Carne (Western Telegraph and and every athlete received a memento to mark their efforts, which were presented by officials as club president Huw Morgan took on the MC's role with his typical mixture of style, good humour and charm.
He also announced the individual winners of the trophies for male and female athletes in every age group, some presented by Andrew Lloyd Hughes and others by the respective coaches from each section of the club.
