Solva Heritage Society

The “THEN and NOW” evening on Thursday 16 August found a goodly number of local history enthusiasts
gathered in the Memorial Hall, to review the earlier photographs, shown by Grace Davies in the “Solva: 100 years Ago” talk, alongside the modern. Many similarities and differences were marvelled at, new facts revealed and tales told. Also viewed were the stories of two local families linking the ancestors of 1918 with residents of Solva today. Very sobering in parts but also uplifting.
Future events: 31 Aug, 1 & 2 Sept: “The story of YPRES” and 28,29,30 Sept: “The story of the SOMME”.
Both at St Aidans Church.
