Summer Hols - a Memory of Coedpenmaen.

My friend Sue and myself would travel by train from Worcester to Cardiff in the school holidays and stay at the shop at 99 Coedpenmaen Road it sold groceries and papers. The people who owned the shop I cannot remember their names but their daughter was married to a man called Peter who was a friend of Sue's parents. They would take us out when the shop was closed and I remeber being so happy. I learnt to swim in Cardiff pool. We would go to the chip shop and buy cutlets of cod on a Friday. I have so many happy memories as I was about 11 years old. I wonder if the shop is still there? I must go back one day.
