Abergele Facebook Group Xmas Drinkies

Abergele Facebook Group Xmas Drinkies is a special get-together on Saturday 1 December 2012 in the Gwindy, Abergele, of members of the Abergele Facebook Group: ‘Abergele People Pictures and its History’. If you haven’t already Liked this group, I urge you to do so as it’s packed full of gems.

If you’d like to join the fun of this reunion of Abergeleites from the town and from further afield, all organiser Juliette Roberts asks you to do is to let her know so that enough mince pies can be ordered. The other people named as organisers on Facebook are Michelle Knight-Gregson, Patricia Hayes and Jayne Jones. It’s going to be a fab festive night and AbergelePost correspondent  David Hughes will post an update here after the event.

St Michael’s Church Clocktower

St Michael’s church clock-tower announces the town and is a real landmark for travellers driving north from Llanfair TH, west from St Asaph and east from Llanddulas. I was dismayed when thieves stole the lynchgates a few years ago; what kind of man steals from a Church?

As the sun projects its rosy warm pink dawn light, I see it, and I know I’ve arrived home.
