Frank and his football.

Rhyl History Club member Ruth Pritchard recently took part in a competition run by Archives Wales called “Tell us Your Story.” Ruth told the story of her great grandfather F.J.H.Beech, aka Frank, who was born in Rhyl in 1874, became a football referee and died of typhoid at the young age of 33.

Archives Wales has used some of the winning stories to create short films.

    A very interesting and beautifully written item and to add to that the great film on YouTube. So confidently narrated and presented by Ruth. I really enjoyed reading and watching. Good to see some positive comments about a Rhyl feature which I have fond memories of and I am sure a lot of other people do too. Thanks and well done. Look forward to some more features from you.
