Visits To Hay As A Little Girl
A Memory of Hay-on-Wye.
I have vivid memories of visiting Hay on Wye as a little girl with my mum and nanna . Our reason for our visits was my nana had relatives there - Alice Jolly, Letchmere Jolly, Riley & Oscar Jolly . They lived in a house called Red Wing which I think was in Lion Street and my one favourite memory was that the garden at the back of the house ran down to a stream . Somewhere I've got some photo's of us by the stream, but one of the things I always remember is whenever we visited, Aunt Alice would always insist on taking us for tea in a little tea shoppe in the middle of Hay . I am in the process of tracing our family tree and have discovered that my great grandmother came from Hay and that is where my grandmother's link with Hay came from, as Alice and the others were her cousins. My daughter and I intend to visit Hay this year to try and trace where the distant family lived. One other thing about the family is that Letch and Riley were blacksmiths at the time. These were very happy childhood memories and Hay hold a special place in my heart. Looking forward to coming back.
