After reading Abergele in Shorts, just before it relocated to this site, Dave Williams wrote:
“Thanks for taking me back to the sights, sounds and indeed smells of my childhood (the old market tunnel!).
I am a descendant of an old Abergele family known as the “Wagongoeds”, and came across your fascinating website while trying to gather information about my dad, who was a world war 2 veteran (now buried at St Michaels). A family member recalled my father being featured in a popular WW2 magazine and this picture was alleged to have been proudly shown in the front window of his sisters shop opposite the old Pandoras Box.
I too recall Dilys Roberts’ fair but firm approach, and what seemed then to be a booming voice, and also the outwardly stern Rhiannon Parry Davies, who incidentally keeps in touch with my mum who was a school secretary and helper at playtimes…real teachers before the days of Common Purpose and insane political correctness!-it all seems like a million years ago, a safer and more innocent time and yet so tangible with just a little prompting from your website!.
Anyway, thanks for the memories and I will look in from time to time to put my feet back on the ground.
PS Do you remember Kelseys Garage?”
