Clwb y Gymdeithas Bae Colwyn

The club had a visit from Penmaenmawr Historical Society and Museum on the 27th of March. It was very interesting not only to hear about the history of Penmaenmawr and the quarry but to handle some artefacts too.

Welcome back to our Colwyn Bay social group members after the Christmas Holidays. You all braved the storms to meet up once again at 20 Station Road, Colwyn Bay. Polly the leader began the meeting by asking everyone to introduce themselves. It was great to hear all your stories. One member talked about the time when she turned 100 and had a letter from King Charles .  Afterward we all sat and chatted until lunch time.
