Taken from the top deck of the ‘Cymru Coastliner’ double decker in August 2016. This trip replicates a trip I remember taking in 1973. That summer was the busiest I can remember along the Towyn stretch. There was a craze for wearing Kiss Me Quick Skweeze Me Slow hats. The place was packed. Not so busy today but a holiday in Towyn is still the highlight of many a family’s year and the memories of childhood holidays along the north Wales coast have prompted people to retun here time and time again.

Free video workshop in Rhyl for charities

When I’m not producing the AbergelePost website, one of the things I do is to sit on the Wales advisory panel of the Media Trust and Community Channel’s Do Something Brilliant Cymru / Wales group. Steve Lloyd of DSB is delivering free video photography and editing training for local charities in Rhyl later this year. Here’s his press release with all the details:

“Media Trust and Community Channel are working with Big Lottery Fund on a campaign to celebrate the incredible work of projects across the country.

“Would you like to Do Something Brilliant and get free video production training from Media Trust, the UK’s leading communications charity?

“The introductory workshops are designed to help charities and community groups understand how they can turn their stories into short films and will cover planning, scripting, recording and editing. Each training course is open to a limited number of organisations and up to two people from each organisation.

“There is a free one-day training workshop on Wednesday 13th April at WCVA, Morfa Hall, Rhyl.

“If you would like to find out more, or apply for a place, then please contact: Steve Lloyd, Community Outreach Manager, Cymru / Wales: stevel@mediatrust.org
