Trefdraeth Bodorgan In The 50s

A Memory of Bodorgan

My memories of Trefdraeth in Bodorgan

Mr Lewis the vicar - respect and fear.

Washi Bach - the tramp - dread

The Grocery van coming round on a Friday - fantastic, fresh bread, picking from a selection of penny sweets from the enamel bowl.

The lady butcher coming round in her van - her red lipstick

Band of hope group in the school room in Bethel - practicing singing with Marylin for the Church Eisteddfod.

Going round Carol Singing.

Going to get butter and buttermilk from Cefn Crin, my mothers auntie's farm, just across a couple of fields from us.
