Happy Childhood Holidays!

Llandudno is one of my favourite places in the world! As a child and early teenager every summer family holiday was spent here. This photo of the top reminds me of knickerbocker glory ice creams with the huge swirl of cream on the top, rock grafitti on the hillside (go there - they still do this!), picknics, walks, tram rides. It was wonderful stuff!

Happy Valley Happy Memories

My sister, Ellen, won a children's talent competition at Happy Valley in 1936, at the age of eight, playing 'Minuet in G' on the piano. I was only aged two at the time but I still remember the 'modern' Kodak camera she won as the prize. Ellen was a very talented musician and went on to enjoy a life full of achievements.

Shows At The Pavilion Theatre

Oh how I remember going to shows at the Theatre. The one I recall most is seeing Tommy Steele - sometime in the 60s. Walking along the Pier before or after and having a cuppa or an icecream - great stuff. Gone are the days!
