Be­fore the con­struc­tion of the Sus­pen­sion and Tubu­lar Bridges this was the only way peo­ple, an an­i­mals and goods could cross the Strait. Sl Slate was car­ried across in the 17th Cen­tury. The Strait is some 15 miles long in to­tal, with very strong cur­rents and sand banks in places. Nu­mer­ous fer­ries were in op­er­a­tion, and in­cluded some very haz­ardous cross­ings. Many lives were lost. Dr. Owen’s talk was ac­com­pa­nied by slides show­ing the var­i­ous fer­ries in op­er­a­tion. He was warmly thanked for a very en­joy­able talk. Next meet­ing will be held at the WI Hall at 7.30pm on Thurs­day, Nov2 and will be the AGM.

Res­i­dents at a shel­tered hous­ing scheme in Amlwch have em­braced the op­por­tu­nity to brighten up the area by plant­ing up hang­ing bas­kets and flower tubs around the area. “The res­i­dents at Bro Tre­hi­non have done a bril­liant job of adding some colour to the scheme and what started with a £50 lo­cal de­vel­op­ment grant from Cl­wyd Alyn, has be­come a year-round com­mit­ment to keep­ing the gar­dens there won­der­ful,” said Louise Black­well, Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer for Cl­wyd Alyn Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion which man­ages the shel­tered hous­ing scheme for over 55s in Amlwch. “It’s lovely to see the res­i­dents tak­ing a real pride in the area where they live and even the change in sea­sons isn’t putting them off as they’ve just planted up some win­ter pan­sies for the colder months ahead,” Louise added.
