My Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay
Welcome to the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am a graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, The Repeaters. Then living in Llandewi Brefi, we had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I have trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web builder and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one.
