Newry Beach is special because it's home.
Wherever I've been in the world there is no place like Newry Beach. Holyhead
people could teach the world a thing or to about community living. Sticking up for each other, supporting each other whether they be family or friends.
'Does na neb fel hogia' dre am edrych allan am ei gilydd. Mi fedra pobl y wlad ddysgu llawer am gymdogaeth a chyfeillgarwch oddiwrth pobl dre.
Mi fyddwn yn mynd i lan môr y Newry hefo Nain "Mr Jones Eggs". Wedi treulio llawer i 'bnawn hefo fy chwaer yn y "paddling pool" yn y Newry - gwneud ffrindiau newydd a chael ambell i 99 hefo Strawberry Sôs o'r caffi hefo ffenast.
Long live Newry Beach!!!
How lovely to hear from you.
I know Holyhead very well and agree about the friendliness and mutual commitment of the towns' people to each other.
I'm also country folk, by the way. And believe it or not we all say the same about you lot. It goes to prove we're all the same when it comes to the important things in life.
Especially ice cream with Strawberry Sôs.
I've translated your message for the many people across the world who read Anglesey Hidden Gem
'There’s no-one like Holyheadians for looking after each other. The country folk could learn a great deal about neighbourliness and friendship from the Town folk.
We used to go the Newry beach with Gran “Mrs Jones Eggs”. I used to spend the afternoon with my sister in the paddling pool on Newry – making friends and munching the odd 99 (ice cream) with strawberry sauce from the cafe with the window.'
Diolch o waelod calon i chi Gwenda
