Llangollen Eisteddfod

A lovey memory jerking newspaper cutting of the first team of sword dancers, with their trophy from Llangollen. The article continued with: “The Loftus sword dancing team which shared in the first prize in the folk dancing competition at Llangollen International Eisteddfod. Back row: Terry Boyes, William Kitchener, Mr. H. Norminton Headmaster of Loftus County Modern School who was in charge of the school party, Colin Beedle, Eric Tyreman, and Mr. A. J. Marshall (accompanist). In the front row are Kenneth Taylor and Maurice Wright.” Are there any of you out there willing to share your memories of that day?

    My name is Charles Harrison. I was a Sword Dancer at Loftus County Modern [old school] in 1960-61. Not sure of the exact date. We took part in many competitions with Mr Norminton. Have been in South Africa for over 50 years. Would appreciate any communication from school mates in that era or anyone in Loftus who may have known me.
