Maesteg's Royal British Legion Club has taken the step of banning swearing altogether within its walls.
The club has warned members they face ejection if they flout the ban.
Club secretary David Roberts defended the ban.
"It has to be taken into context" he says.
"What we're not accepting is for our members to go to other places, come here and swear out loud and offend everyone".
"People come here and they expect people to behave".
As well as writing a strongly-worded letter to the UK Government's Health Secretary, the Welsh Health Minister has also written to all staff members in the NHS in Wales.

The text of the minister's letter is below:
