I noticed they were doing some work on the river near Ysgol Glan Morfa last month and now I know why. I’ve just been reading Kath Evans’s story about new flood defences for Abergele. In the story, Malcolm Medlicott, mayor of Abergele, says he clearly remembers the 1971 floods.
That was 30 years ago this July. Here are some photos my father took at the time. Kath was kind enough to phone me yesterday to ask to use one in her report. She was editor of the Abergele Visitor and is about to leave BBC Wales where she’s done a fantastic job with the North West Wales website. I wish Kath all the best in her future projects.
