iVisit of French and Belgian…


Visit of French and Belgian i Journalists. These Journalists, who have been touring Wales, visited Barmouth on Tuesday, on their way back to London. They were received at the Railway Sta- tion by the Rev. Gwynoro Davies, (Chair- man of the Advertising Committee) and Mr. Rhys Jones, J.P. (Chairman of the Urban Council). After alighting from the.special train the Journalists were taken to the plot close to the Barmoutji Library where the pupils of the County School and Town Council Schools bad congre- gated together. After the pupils of the County School had rendered a chorus of welcome in French, Mr Rbys Jones, on behalf of the Council, said We desire to tender to you a most cordial and hearty welcomejto Barmouth. We regret that you cannot stay awhile to admire the beautiful scenery, though you have no doubt passed through a certain part of pic- turesque Wales, we venture to state that you will not have seen anything to compete with what you will now see as you traverse along the side of the Maw- ddach Estuary. We have a thousand and one beauty spots in and around this little but populal" seaside resort; we have miles of golden sands and if you should at any future time visit Bar- mouth again, you could remain for a month and find a new walk daily amongst the hills and dales with which we are surrounded, and those of you who like the boating and fishing could enjoy yourselves to your hearts content. Afterwards Mr. E. D. Jones,-M.A. gave an address in French, which was well received by the Journalists. In responding one of the Journalists said they bad beard French singing at many towns en route, but nowhere had they beard it with such effect as that rendered by the Barmouth children. That morning they had seen Cardigan Bay at its best, which they would never forget. After the singing of the National Anthem, the Journalists were taken by motor cars to Tynygroes, en route for London.
