A lot could be written about Mr Ress since coming to Glanamman twenty three years ago, since he showed a deep ineterst in educational, political and social matters of benefit to inhabitants. Glangarnant stands in the upper part of Cwmamman, Carmarthenshire, and to this area Mr Rees was a medicine in the face of great and lengthy objection to get for them one of the main seasonal blessings that a multitudinous circle of people to possess, that of a supply of pure water from Fforest Fawr Wells. He was the leading Chairman of Llanguicke School. He is a Justice of the peace of Glamorgan and Carmarthen counties and is a member of the council of the last county, having in every election been returned unopposed over the Quarter Bach division. In the first meeting of the county council  he was appointed as preparatory Chairman. While in this temporary post, he felt it was a responsibility on him, in a county as Welsh as Carmarthen, to open proceedings with a few Welsh words, causing surprise amongst the old county organizations who at once asked for a translator.

He took a prominent role on behalf of the Liberal party in the recent East Carmarthen and West Glamorgan elections, and many an interesting political meeting was held in the passing years from his dwelling under the sponsorship of the Anthracite Miners Society, where some of the frontline ministers were talking, namely Mr Thomas E Ellis M.P., (twice), Mabon, M.P., Mr Thomas Burt M.P., Lord Battersea, the late MR R.H.Powell, M.P., Mr. D.A. Thomas., M.P., Mr D,Randall, M.P., Mr. J o’Connor Power late M.P., and others. Mr Rees is this year’s President of the East Carmarthen Liberal Society.
He did much  good to the social circumstances of his district it is known that the upper section of the valley, containing Cwmamman and Brynamman, well known for years for the excellent yearly concerts held there, where famous singers like Ben Davies. Maggie Davies, Ffrangcon Davies, M.A, Eleanor Rees, Maldwyn Humphreys, Dyfed Lewis & c.  It is acknowledged that Mr Howell Rees started theses concerts, which did so much good for the inhabitants and which continue under the care of capable and enthusiastic committees. Mr Rees’s favourite pleasure is to do everything to promote the benefit and happiness of the people who he lives amongst, and he has been successful in this work.
