Early Years in Park Road

I started Tanyfron primary school in 1951 and went on to Penygelli Secondary school, Coedpoeth, in 1958. When I started at Tanyfron the Head teacher was Mr Jackson, quite a strict and serious man if I remember rightly. Soon after him was Mr Emlyn Davies, totally opposite, a very jovial man.

I was evacuated with my sister to Brynteg, Wrexham and lived with a Mr and Mrs Wynne at Holbourn Crescent. Mr Wynne was a miner. The house I think, was a council house. I also remember the AGIE! and aso the Cross Keys pub. I loved Brynteg.

Thoughts of This Lady.
Can anyone remember a teacher called Miss Miriam Roberts? The first class teacher for girls in the junior school Brynteg. The boys would have left infants school for Blacklane school in Pentre Broughton. She used to live across the road to the right of Plevins shop. I was born in 20 Quarry road Brynteg. My Dad was Frank Williams he was born in number 19 Quarry road. I really hope to hear from someone remembering this dear lady.
My Early Years in Brynteg
I was born at 1 Cilcain Grove, Brynteg in 1935 to Peter Price Davies and Kitty Davies with my brother David and sister Joan. I went to the junior and secondary schools before going on to the Wrexham Technical Collage. Later went to Brymbo Steelworks where I trained as a bricklayer after 5 years enlisting in the RAF, where I served for 5 years. I used to spend lot of time at the Richards Milk Bar, while on several occasions used to drive the ice-cream van, and was Idris Richards best man at his wedding. Went to the dances in Wrexham where a great time was had by all every Saturday night. I still go back now and again to see my sisiter who still live in Brynteg. I used to go to St Peters Church where I, along with my dad, sang in the choir
