Here’s a gem from Dennis Parr’s photography collection, which he’s kindly let the AbergelePost share. It’s a photo of the inside of the Parr’s family’s Little Shop, which sold sweets and cards.
I have very happy memories of buying sweets from here. If you zoom into the picture, you’ll see names like: Treets, Big Chief ice lolly, Coffee Crisp, Caramac and Skippy.
This photo by Sion Jones, taken in 2014, shows the pipes that sucked up sand out at sea which was poured out on the beach in Colwyn Bay to create a new sandy beach. The old one was sucked away by the tides during the stormy winter of 2013/14. The pipes were pieced together before being towed out to sea on the beach at Pensarn.

This whole building used to be the police station before being used as a magistrates’ court and as a meeting place for the Town Council and other organisations.
Mae yr adeilad hwn yn cael ei defnyddio i Gyngor Trefol Abergele yn ogystal a chyfarfodydd eraill.
