Trelewis Ex-Servicemans club,British legion
There used to be a thriving Ex Servicemen's social club in the village. It was situated on a road from General and Commercial garage that went up past the War memorial on Captains hill under two railway tunnels and out into Bontnewydd Terrace passing the club which was nestled into the cuttings. The club suffered through a drop in members and needed a lot of repairs in the early 1980’s, however the final blow came when the club burned down later that decade and was never replaced after a problem with insurance monies.

The officers and volunteers of the British legion in the village used to organise the armistice day march to the memorial statue, close by on Captains hill. These same members were instrumental in raising funds and arranging for the Memorial statue to be moved to a new site in the village, near the Ffaldcaich Inn, in February 2002.
There is a dedicated page about the Ex Servicmen's club in the Trelewis people section of the website, written by Brian Jones.
