Twynyrodyn Junior School



Twynyrodyn Social Club - 1945

Arthur Williams tells us "the old social club was situated at the bottom of Walters Terrace known to us youngsters as School Street.

If you take a look at the photo of Twyn Junior School above and imagine looking up Walters Terrace with the school on your right

the Social Club was situated on the opposite left hand corner.
From the girl standing bottom left in the picture the names read Tudor James, Dennis Evans, Dennis or Geoffrey Howells,

Sylvia Howells(possibly), Myself, Colin Jarman and his sister Pamela who were my next door neighbours on Queens Road."
