Gas Tank

I used to live near that gas tank and sometimes you could smell the gas. Also across the road, there was "something dangerous" which the local residents wanted removing,I think it was a fire or explosive hazard of some kind. Glyn,Llandudno

Christ Church Arvon Avenue

Does anyone have any memories or photgraphs of the church and or the church house next door? I know the Sheperd family lived in the house and that the Reverend Sheperd preached at the church, that's all I have (except that I know the church closed its doors as a place of worship a few years ago and nothing has happened to it since).

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.
