Mr Glyn Davies has given the Society a wonderful set of press cuttings featuring concerts,memorial services and business adverts from years ago. Unfortunately, the adverts are not dated though many of the businesses and owners are easily within recent memory. What is most interesting is the range of services available in the village and also the nature of the adverts compared to nowadays. The advert for a wireless set from Munn's treats the buyer with respect and is a mile away from the soundbite culture of today. It might be an idea to have a special meeting so that more information can be gleaned from the older members regarding some of these shops and businesses.
