50th Birthday book

What are we planning to do for our Society's 50th birthday?

We discussed this at a recent committee meeting, and as a result we are hoping that it will be possible for us to publish a book/booklet (depending on your response!).

What we are looking for are 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) – anything will be considered, and it would be wonderful if we can get some personal memories or recollections over the last 50 years to include... the sort of things and recollections that really should be recorded but never have been before.  We're NOT asking anyone to produce a whole chapter (but if you can – then please do!)  Contributions can be absolutely any length from a few words to a couple of pages and in either Welsh or English (or both).  I would hope that every village and our one town can be represented in some way.

Perhaps you can not think of anything immediately yourself – BUT perhaps you know someone locally who you could ask, and who would like to write something for us, there is so much local knowledge out there.  All contributions will be acknowledged in the publication.

Contributions are not restricted to those from Civic Society members - all are welcome to join in.

Please send anything you think might be suitable (before the end of July 2019 if possible please)  to:
