Carl and Janet attended the annual prize giving which was held in Prestatyn at the multi million pound redeveloped Nova Leisure Centre The waves crashed on the shoreline outside and the wind made it difficult to walk.

Tribute to Roger Lewis

My Father My father was brought up in the small village of Llanmartin – son to Wilfred and Christiana, he had an amazing and wonderful life. Despite being sent to boarding school, Dad did not let that get in the way of pursuing his hobbies and interests. Right from the start these were to be: horses, animals, music and family. Just before Dad passed away, we revisited family haunts. Weston Super Mare where despite the lack of motorways or a Severn Bridge the whole Lewis family, including the Weeks girls and Brian (Grand Pee R) went off for their two week family holiday. The same hotel each year – the Victoria Hills Hotel. At the age of 10 and ponies and competing was high on the agenda

Following a presentation at the Police HQ to introduce the system, two meetings have been held of the local Neighbourhood Watch areas. which Jacqui has attended. At present it is experiencing transition issues as those who are loyal to Owl try to come to terms with it. Hopefully it will continue to progress and prove a great community asset but at present it seems difficult to see how it will be resolved. Jacqui will attend the next meeting and report on any progress!
