Voices from the Past

This forum is open to all of the villagers of Trelawnyd past and present

I would like for them to share their memories, old photographs, family histories and past Village news with me so that I may be able to present a comprehensive record of this small. ancient and facinating Welsh Village Community throughout the ages.

All photographs will be returned after being scanned and published

For those that want to read a comprehensive study on the History of Trelawnyd, please refer to the Book "TRELAWNYD PAST & PRESENT" by Daphne and Ken Davies

The Village Flower Show Blog can be viewed at

and my personal Village based blog can be seen at


Best Wishes

Thespian Trelawnyd

Much has been made of the "Cultural" side of the people of Trelawnyd
(See previous the 1958 Journal review of the Memorial Hall in the previous blog entry)
But up to relatively recent times pantomimes and plays were the norm in village life.
The above programmes are from two productions from 1966 and 1967 both produced by Terence A Jones who played the dame in both productions! (with music by the ubiquitous B.A.Jones!)

  1. Wow! Fantastic!
    Thanks for sharing, John! I truly enjoyed the visit.

  2. Village productions are usually very unique...watching neighbors act is fun! When I was young the community school I attended put on productions throughout the school year...I always intensely disliked being in one 'cause I was such a timid soul. But when the school ceased to exist a bit of the heart of the community did too!

  3. Hi John

    I used to work with Tecwyn, and sat on the Bench with his elder brother Austin who has recently retired, and who is I believe the only Olympic Athlete to have lived in Trelawnyd
