Happy Memories - a Memory of Prestatyn.

I went to Vale View School at 72 Meliden Road as a boarder from 1960 to 1966 and those six years were some of the happiest times of my whole life. The headmistress Mrs Constance Gill and her two sisters Miss Edith Woodward and Miss Hilda Woodward who were both teachers were three of the most wonderful people I have ever known. I remember my time at Vale View so well and are coming to stay later in the year as the school is now Vale View Holiday Cottages. When I married in 1979, my future father in law drove from Aintree, Liverpool to Prestatyn on the morning of the wedding to bring Mrs Gill and her sister Miss Hilda Woodward to the church and reception afterwards and then took them home afterwards as I couldn't have got married without them there. So many precious wonderful memories.
