May DayFrom Gaynor Williams comes this photograph which shows her late son Gareth Williams standing at the back, second from right. His sister Elizabeth is in the third row from the front, fourth from right wearing a white top.

The picture was taken about 1970 on the car park at Marine Lake just before the float carrying ‘Rhyl Rollers’ roller skating club members moved off to join the May Day parade.

THU 4th FEB 2010 UPDATE: Thanks to Mrs. Ceri Ann Swinney for sending the following identifications: "On the float, in the front row are, left to right: Ceri Ann Jones (me), Jane Evans, Pauline Jones, Don’t know, Joy Jones.
Second row, left to right: Melita Miles, Julie Henley, Joanne Henley, Helen Taylor.
Standing furthest left is Sue Roberts who was later a town and county councillor.”

FRI 11th AUG 2017 UPDATE: Something of a rare find these days - a Rhyl Rollers Skating Club badge.
