Time to focus on gifts and presents. What can I suggest for the Rhylite who has everything? A Rhyl-crested china miniature grandfather clock, teapot, three-handled loving cup or jug? 

How about these suggestions from Dave Williams: on your left a travel charm for your bracelet, and on you right a little badge for your lapel.

How about a pig? Don't see many of these in Rh . . . Oh I don't know, though . . .

Much appreciated might be a Bicycle brooch, Rhyl Golf fridge magnet or an old Pavilion sugar bowl.

And here is a T-shirt for wearing on days out in Llandudno:

T shirt Tee

On the general subject of giving, here is a tankard inscribed, "CYRIL JONES ESQ. ON THE OCCASION OF HIS OPENING THE CLWYD MARKET RHYL JULY 4TH 1972"

Who can tell me who Cyril Jones was and/or where Clwyd Market was? This is not a quiz question - I am looking for the information.
