Thomas Evans of Castle Street is now Lily's Floral Design - our shop! Last year we were given an original hand-written receipt for groceries dating from 1922 from Thomas Evans!

These adverts were all part of a programme for a Rainbow Fayre held at St George's Church Hall in 1903. I'm told that the hall was situated near Glanhowy School and the Thomas Richards Centre, but all that remains of it today is one small piece of the boundary wall.
