a beautiful photo from Juliet Roberts. It's a rare shot from 1968 of
the long swingsand witches hat in the Playnies, Parc Gele, being ridden
by Sue, baby Juliet, and dad Dennis. It's reproduced with
Susan's permission. Read Susan's memories below her pic. Has anyone
got any more pictures of the Playnies I wonder?
I have visited your site many times over the past few years, and it
always raises a giggle and brings back many happy memories. Just been
reading it again tonight as I was looking for some pictures of The floods
that occured in 1971 to show my son who is learning about rivers in
school! Love your Dad's pics of The Playnies...that witches hat!!! The
link to Dave Williams' site was great...theres a piture of my Godfather
Mr Trefor Roberts! I lived in Glanrafon during those floods. I was 4
years old. I remember my brother and I seeing a shed floating down the
river....I thought I was dreaming. You may remember my brother...or
maybe my sisters: Ann, Susan & Dennis Roberts. As I said, we lived in
Glanrafon back then.
Here is one of the few pictures (unfortunately) I have of me in the
Playnies. It was taken in 1968 when I was 16 months old!! As you can
see, I'm on the 'Long Swing' with my Lovely old Dad (Dennis) and sister
Sue who was 13 years old at the time.
