Capel Lon y Felin
Another part of my happy childhood in Llangefni was going to chapel. Ours was Capel Lon y Felin.
It was seen then as a poor relation to Moriah Chapel
, but here at our chapel was a warmth and a welcome not found elsewhere. With T C Simpson, Edward Williams and Ivor Williams
to name a few at the helm how could there not be.
The singing was out of this world. In fact, come Harvest Festival the chapel would be packed with standing-room only and some people outside!
Sunday mornings is when we learnt our 'Do Re Me
' and children's hymns and Mr Owen would be there to teach us.
The afternoon would be Sunday School and if you progressed to the evening service then the mint imperials would be passed round and the old men would agree with the visiting preacher with heads bowed murmuring, "Ia Wir. Ia Wir."
Then of course was the Sunday School Trip which was usually Rhyl or Llandudno. We looked forward to this day out, looking back we were easily pleased, but then most ordinary people did not have cars and we had to save each week to be able to have the day out.
When I have been able to return to Llangefni in the past I have called in at the chapel and while the retainers of my day are gone the welcome is still there,you should try it some time if you are also in town.
