    Coldplay gold disc auction to help Pantymwyn hall fund


    Jonny Buckland grew up in Pantymwyn before meeting band mates, including singer Chris Martin

    A Coldplay gold disc is being auctioned to help restore the village hall where guitarist Jonny Buckland grew up.

    Buckland, who lived in Pantymwyn, Flintshire, as a child, was alerted to the cause by his parents, who still live in the area.

    He donated the disc, which marks 100,000 sales of the best-selling band's latest album, Mylo Xyloto.

    The Pantymwyn hall work will cost over £43,000 and organisers are a few thousand short of the target.

    The disc, which is being sold by auctioneers Bonhams in London later, is part of an entertainment auction which includes Coldplay frontman Chris Martin's Yamaha CP70 piano, although that is not part of the Pantymwyn fundraising.

    Bonhams expects the disc to attract plenty of interest from Coldplay's huge following.

    Katherine Williams, senior specialist in entertainment memorabilia, said: "We have two Coldplay items in the sale, and not much relating to Coldplay has come onto the market previously.

    "We're hoping it will do well."

    Buckland's family moved to Pantymwyn, near Mold, when he was four. He attended Ysgol y Waun in Gwernaffield and Mold Alun High School, where he studied A-level music.

    He started playing guitar as a young boy and met fellow Coldplay members during their first week at University College London in the mid-1990s.

    The village hall committee say Buckland used the hall with other youngsters for parties and plays while he was growing up.

    Plans for the hall - which is used for concerts among other community events - include a new roof, walls and doors.

    Christmas plays

    Chris Johnson, village hall committee chairman, said Coldplay had already given £10,000 to the fund through the band's grant-giving foundation.

    "We started getting some donations and then the fundraising was circulated to everyone including Mr and Mrs Buckland [Jonny Buckland's parents], who got in touch and said we would be hearing from Coldplay," he said.

    "When he [Jonny Buckland] was living here, he was in Christmas plays in the hall - he's familiar with it and still has a soft spot for the village and hall.

    "It's great that someone who is famous and doesn't live here still thinks about us."

    The disc, which features the signatures of all four band members, was a gift from music giant EMI to Buckland.

    It marks 100,000 sales in Germany of the album.

    I seriously need to think of something to get a grant from Coldplay's foundation.

    Coldplay disc auction helps Pantymwyn Village Hall

    A FLINTSHIRE village has a world famous band to thank for a planned refurbishment of the community hall.

    A Coldplay gold disc donated to the Pantymwyn Village Hall Committee by guitarist Jonny Buckland, originally from the village, sold for £450 at auction at Bonhams in London on Tuesday.

    And the group donated £10,000 from their charitable foundation after hearing of the plans for the hall – where Jonny spent some of his childhood.

    Chris Johnson, chairman of the Pantymwyn Village Hall Committee, said the group approached all of the residents to ask for donations and Jonny’s parents John and Joy let him know about the fundraising drive.

    He said: “Coldplay have been a massive help. I can’t emphasise how much it means, they’ve been absolutely great.

    “As well as the financial support, their help means we’ve been able to go to other organisations and say Coldplay are supporting us and they’ve come on board as well.”

    The committee has also received funding from rural regeneration agency Cadwyn Clwyd and the lottery to raise £55,000 needed for the work, due to start in September.

    The cash will allow the committee to replace drains, install a new kitchen and new wiring and pay for a new roof and new windows.

    This just adds on to the list of the many reasons why I love Coldplay!
    It all started with a joke—and need I say that it all ended on a joke as well.
