Memories of Abergele in the 1960s, 70s and 80s written by Gareth Morlais. This was originally a column which appeared in the Abergele Visitor in 1996.
NEWS: a new series of Abergele in Shorts will run from 7 October 2011 until the end of 2011. I’ll be gathering the stories as they’re published under this tag. The best way to keep up to date is to sign up for the new free AbergelePost Email Newsletter at the top-right of this page.
Thanks to my wife, Gwenan, and my parents, John and Hilary Williams, for encouragement, corrections and suggestions. Thanks to the people I’ve written about – Abergele’s characters – for the inspiration.)
