Memories of Ammanford
My grandparents, James and Mary Walters, owned the John Bull Stores from the 20's to the 30's and lived at 9, Margaret Street.
Going to Ammanford Park was a rare treat even though we only lived 3 miles away in Capel Hendre. It was a beautifully manicured park with a great bandstand which was used more for children to play in, than the Ammanford Silver Band! It had a good tennis court and I remember the summer of 1969 when we played tennis in the hot summer sun - or is that just a rose-tinted memory? The park was covered over by the Eisteddfod in 1970, the summer my mother - Nurse Gwenda Edwards - and I, acted in a play called Glò mân.
