1950s And 60s - a Memory of Llantwit Major.

My mother was born in Llantwit in 1928. Her parents, Jack and Katie Sutton kept the greengrocer’s shop next door to the Post Office in Wine Street. I was born in 1952 and although we left Llantwit eighteen months later, I have fond memories of visiting my grandparents. My parents bought a caravan on the beach in about 1967 and we spent weekends and summer holidays there for several years. My mother is 90now and spends lots of time talking about he childhood and looking at hundreds of photos. We too visit Wine Street coffee shop and sometimes chat with Mary Punter.
