My family moved from Pill in early 1960's to a new 3 storey house in Thames Close. The estate was only part built but me and my family moved in - it was a fantastic 'adventure playground'. Local PC known as 'Copper Paul' was the local 'Sheriff'. I lived in Bettws until 1973. We lived a rough and tough life - having to travel out of area (Malpas) until Millbrooke School was completed in 1963/4 (I think) and then Brynglas Secondary Modern and then Newport High School - not a great standard of education. I no longer live in Newport but Pill and Bettws will always be my home. To everyone that may remember me or my family, please drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
