In January this year, Jack Jones set up a stall in Queens Market (near the Sussex Street entrance). Jack does jewellery repairs, watch and clock repairs and buys gold. He has been in the Rhyl district for about eight years. His is a West Bromwich family; they came often to the North Wales coast on holiday.

To illustrate the point Jack has supplied a couple of 1957 pictures of himself as a lad aged 8 with his father at Robin Hood camp in Rhyl, and at Towyn with his sister Ann aged 7. Ann is one member of the family who still lives in the Midlands; she works as an administrator in the National Health Service.
