SOCIALISTS IN Cardiff were saddened to hear of the tragic death of Terry Jenkins. Terry, who had moved to St Dogmaels, Cardigan, some months ago, was a well known socialist in Cardiff. After joining the Young Communist League he joined the International Socialists in the 1970s and was an active member of SWP for many years.
He dropped out of politics for a while, but later joined the Anti Nazi League and Welsh Socialist Alliance. He started life as a painter and decorator, went to Coleg Harlech, worked for many years in the local psychiatric hospital, and the local hostel for alcoholics. Recently he had returned to part time decorating.
He was a thoughtful, caring person who will be much missed. Our thoughts go out to his wife Lynn, brother Brynley and family.
