More News from the History of Deganwy Group:
At the last meeting Jonathan Wilkins gave a talk on the local geology of the area. His explanation of the formation of the Vardre humps was particularly interesting. As was the views about the sand and the Estuary Path.
Interestingly Jonathan's views to the sand ingress on to the path was that you won't be able to stop it, and the solution instead was to build the pass on a board walk allowing the sand to move underneath and through the boardwalk slots. Something that I have proposed as a solution in the past with officers, but would need substantial investment to build. I have a hint to to the sand issue in my election leaflet "I can't promise to ... stop the sand of times"
On Tuesday 10th April, the plaque to commemorate the bravery and heroism of Commander Harold Lowe of Deganwy at the time of the sinking of the Titanic was unveiled at the house where he lived in Deganwy. The plaque which was commissioned by the History Group in conjunction with Conwy Town Council was unveiled by Arfon Haines Davies and many people turned out to witness the ceremony. We where very lucky with the weather and the rain held off for the ceremony.
The next meeting will be held at 7pm on Thursday 19th April when Bob Barnsdale will give a talk about the ancient maps of Wales and of Creuddyn in particular. Members free, Visitors £2.
On Friday 20th and Saturday 21st April the annual Spring Exhibition will be held: Friday 2pm - 4pm; Saturday 10am - 4pm. Admission Free
