There's a fair chance, seeing as EVERYONE is called Roberts!

In fact, I have looked on my phone contacts, and I have added NINE of them in the last four years.

Working in the area for 6 - 8 months, just saying "Hello"

Maghull

Welcome to the area & hope that you enjoy your stay here,    Maghull reminds me of of when we travelled there to play football,  many years ago and after the game we always went to the Punchbowl Pub and we were there from when it opened until the time it closed.
Gordon West the Everton goalkeeper often served our drinks and always had a pint nearby for himself.   Saw Ian Gallaghan there once and he was drinking fruit juice as he always kept himself in good shape.

Just saying Hello. Local plumbing and heating business, always interested on the goings on across the Three Towns area.

Gordan West was a great man, very funny and witty. I remember him saying 'If I had earned the money Rooney earns, I would have played for 2 years then buggered on a beach and drink!' Sadly he died a couple of years ago.

'Honey West' as the Kop called him! Even presented him with a handbag before one derby match at Anfield!

I've moved the research questions into "Llandudno's early Families" in Genealogy and Research.

Just to say Hello.

Having followed this forum for a long time I finally joined.

Have been a local resident for 15 years now having spent many happy holidays in the area in the sixties (what memories). In the "short time" I've lived here I've seen a lot of that History fall away. That's not a surprise as you can't live in the past. What is a suprise is the lack of any vision to replace it!

Word of explanation "a local nobody" or A.O.L is councilspeak for a resident who wants support for, or questions local activites.
Hence the plural "Those local nobodies" some people translate this as meaning voters.

Hi, I discovered this forum last night as my mum is a family history fanatic (I think she plans to join soon too) In the photos section, I met my Great Taid and saw my Great Aunt as a little girl, fabulous, looking forward to trawling through more. I'm not a Llanduno girl but my Grandad was deeply rooted in the town ( though he quife liked Mold for a beer as long as it was Ansells Ale!)

LLandudno has a special place in my heart and memories.  Me and my wife visited countless times over the years.  Unfortunately my wife passed away 3 years ago, but the memories remain.  Looking forward to being a part of what looks to be a great community.  Cheers.
