On display will be some history of shops and business in Llandysul, this is in conjunction with the current exhibition which is on display at Llandysul Library. Also there will be information and photographs about many houses within Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli including copies of architectural drawings from the Fitzwilliam estate. There will also be information and old photos of the railway and other events and activities from Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli. Society members will be on hand to try to answer any questions.
The Society are inviting the public to bring in any photographs or memorabilia of Llandysul and the surrounding area which can be recorded by scanning or photographing. If people wish to share their memories they can be recorded too. The Society are particularly looking for stories and photos of friends and family who served during World War 1 and World War 2, as well as Home Guard, Land Army and any information at all of this period in history in Llandysul and the surrounding area. The intention is to gather enough information to open a new exhibition in 2014, this will be 100 years since the beginning of World War 1.
Culturenet Cymru will also be present on the Friday with their Digital Heritage in the Community Project. They are available to teach the public on how to use digital equipment to document important history and create a personal archive on the People's Collection Wales website where family, friends and the world wide community can share the information. Culturenet Cymru have been holding weekly workshops in the Powerhouse, Pont-Tyweli and collected old recipes and remedies at this year's Llandysul Food Festival.
