The Van

A Memory of Bodfari

The van outside the shop is a Morris and it belonged to Mr Edwards from Cil Llwyn as he was the only one with a new van in that area in 1955, the Vron Farm had a Morris Cowley van the same colour, because when we went to Bibby's Feed in Denbigh he kept saying 'I should of bought one but it was too much money'. The gate in the near hedge was the entrance to the vicarage and had a great Pippin apple tree in the garden that we would go scrumping, and if we let Mr Thomas the vicar catch us he would give us a bag full of the apples to take back home, not that we wanted them as Cil Llwyn had a huge orchard with lots of different trees.
