Memories of Bridgend, the Bus Station c1965

Working As A Conductor

I remember in 1960 working as a conductor on the 'Western Welsh. My driver was Dai Williams, and my uncle, Danny Evans, was a driver, along with Ernie Sharrott. We had the best Solo card school in town, and I can say now at the age of 69, it was the best, happiest job, in my whole life. I live in Bristol now, but as an ex 'Cottage Homes boy' (1943 to !958) I still love visiting my brother Leslie and sister Audrey in Bridgend regularly I would love to hear from any body who knows me.

Echo Stand At Bus Station Bridgend

I was a big time Echo & Western Mail seller before I left school in 1966. I remember the guy selling the Echo, his name was Dennis and he sported a beard. One of my first jobs when I left school was in the parcel office, where I started as a parcel boy, and then I worked my way up to parcel van driver before going on to become a conductor. I finished in Jan 1971, just as decimilisation came in. I have many fond memories of working on the buses (Western Welsh).

Newspaper Stand At The Bus S Tation.

I was born and bred in Bridgend; less than 1/2 mile from th bus station in an (estate)? known then as "Coity Fields Estate" just behind the Girls' Grammar School, where my sister attended and also my Aunt Rene worked as secretary. My brother John and myself attended the Boys' Grammar School, while my other brother David attended other schools including Heolgam and Maesteg Comp. The Newspaper "Echo" stand that stood on the pavement alongside the N&C and Red 'n' White Bus stand, was one of my places of employment. I'm older now and live in Pontycymer, but the memories will always remain.

The Old House On The Bridge

I remember the lady who lived in the mediaeaval house to the right of the picture. She had white hair in a bun and a long black skirt. Her garden at the front, which was a strip bordering the pavement, always had a giant sunflower in it each year.
