Happy Memories

Here's 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?

Happy memories
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.
