Cymry'r Cant: Hugh Llanfairfechan

 

A series for S4C about people who are over a 100 years old.

 

The 3-part series starts with Hugh Lloyd Jones.

 

He's an incredible person. He left school at a young age to become an apprentice electrician. Hugh pressed the switch to provide Llanfairfechan with electricity for the first time.

 

He has so many stories - his days in the Azores during the Second World War and his involvement in the decision to change the date of the D-Day Landings. Hugh says that if the date had not been changed, many more people would have died.

 

Hugh was an entrepreneur even as a child and in the 1970s he became the Mayor of Aberconwy.
