Happy Times

A Memory of Abersoch.

I am Ian Robinson and I worked at Land and Sea and then the Tarantella in 1965 with a guy called Rob Smedley the Tarantella was managed by a Mrs Olwyn Robinson and I think the owner was called Preston though I am not too sure of that. Does anyone know what happened to Rob Smedley I would very much like to know.

With thanks to Ian Robinson for this memory of Abersoch

I am Debbie Tissot previously Cole, my 'uncle' owned tarantella and my god parents owned Land and sea and their name was Preston, Rob Smedley, I believe, nick name Spud worked for my parents at the White House Hotel, I remember sitting with him and other staff for our staff dinners before service, he was a lovely man, but I don't know where he went afterwards or can ask anyone now except my aunt and uncle who had Criag y mor hotel, who may remember. They still live in the area and I am sure you can track them down to ask. Good luck.
My name is Kathleen Armitage and I stayed at the Warren in the 60s it was a fantastic holiday. I Love Abersoch .Tonight I did a search on the White House and was shocked and sad to learn it has been demolished. We stayed there in the 70s it was lovely.
My name is Rob Jones,my family owned the tarantella from 1963 to 1973 when it was sold to the Warren and became the sandpiper. Robert Smedley worked there until he married my sister. He theneeds ran the neigwl hotel with her. I still keep in touch with him. He lIves in New Brighton
Hi Rob thanks for that I have searched for “Smed “ for a very long time I wonder could you let him know about my search and perhaps give him my email address :- bellerothon@btinternet.com
Many thanks Ian Robinson
