50th Birthday book

What did we do for our Society's 50th birthday in 2019?

We discussed this at committee meetings, and as a result we have been collecting articles and Conwy Valley miscellany throughout 2019 to be published in book form.

We looked for true stories, memories, snippets of information – indeed anything to do with the entire area covered by The Conwy Valley Civic Society. Amazing, amusing, unusual, sad, happy, historic (or more recent) – and we have some very personal memories and recollections to include too ... things that should be recorded but never have been before.

We've had whole chapters, and items only a few words in length - a fascinating pot-pourri, and we’re putting it all together now!

More to follow……

Contributions were not restricted to those from Civic Society members -

everyone was welcome to join in.  

Thank you all.

The CVCS area includes:

 Gyffin - Henryd - Glan Conwy

 Pentrefelin - Tal-y-cafn

 Eglwysbach - Tyn-y-groes

 Ro-wen - Pontwgan - Caerhun  Llanbedrycennin - Tal-y-bont

....and all points in between (my apologies if I've left anyone out, this is only a guide to the general area - we actually cover all the valleys of The Conwy, Lledr, Machno and Llugwy).
