Memories of Ammanford
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.
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.
