Memories of Dyfed

Boyhood Memories

As a child I lived in a lovely house called Glanafon next to the old County Stores bakery in St Clears with my mother Anglea and step-dad Malcolm, and my 2 sisters, Rosemarie and Teresa. Unfortunately Teresa passed away over 20 years ago whilst we lived in Wales, but the loving memories of my family and fantastic innocent memories of our childhood and upbringing in St Clears will remain forever in my thoughts and heart. Just to get up on a summer holiday and go fishing on the Dewi or Taf with my mates was one of my summer highlights, to catch fresh sewin or salmon, or to just hop on the bus through Laurgharne and to spend the day at Pendine Sands. Oh, the joy of innocent childhood memories, I wouldn't change a thing. As a young adult I had the pleasure and honour of working for the local authority in St Clears and met and worked with some lovely people whose friendship I will always cherish in my... Read more

Clyngwynne Farm

I lived at Clyngwynne Farm until 1987. We moved there from Whitland Abbey where we lived with my husband's parents, Rhodri and Gwendoline Thomas. My husband Rhodri and I took over Clyngwynne Farm after my father-in-law gave up dairy farming. Before that (Benjamin) Alun Thomas lived there as our superb cowman/farm manager with his wife Gwyneth and their three children and a grumpy old sheepdog called Bob who used to bite my ankles. Next door to us in Clyngwynne Mansion lived Hywel and Bethan Williams with their three children. We were very fond of Richard, their eldest son. The time I spent at Clyngwynne were the happiest of my life. We knew all our neighbours and they always had time for us. We never locked the house or the car, there was no need. The Lamb Inn in Llanboidy village was our local watering hole and our children started their education in the village school. Such lovely, happy memories ...

Evacuee 1943 to 1957

Yes, me and my brother were evacuees. We came from London by steam train to Carmarthen cattle market in 1943. We were met by a crowd of local people offering to let us stay with them, it was very frighenting, we did not know any body. We had a label on our coat to say who we were, there were four of us, two boys and two girls aged 5 to 10 years old. . Mrs Morris took John and me but she did not have the room for my sisters - my sisters were taken by Mrs Morgan. We found out a couple of days later our sisters were at a farm not far from from us, so we were able to go and see them. We settled... Read more

My Memories

Memories for Meidrim 1943 and 1957. Evacuee 1943 Yes me and my brother was evacuees from London in 1943. We arrived in Carmarthen and were lead to the cattle market - all we had was a box with a gas mask in it. There was a label on our coat with our name and our address on it . There were lots of other children there too. Some were crying, it was very frighting because we did not know anybody. As I was the eldest I held my brother's and sisters' hand as our mother had told us to . My brother and I were picked out by a lady with gray hair - her name was Mrs Morris. She said she could take my brother and I, but did not have room for my sisters. I said... Read more
