Time to Move On, by Pam Gresty

This story is about my journey from farming to a more relaxed lifestyle in Conwy. I was farming on the side of Moel Fammau for 25 years and had lots of good experiences but also many tough and sad days, which comes with farming animals. My husband Bob helped over the weekends but there comes a time when age, your body and your health tell you it is time to slow down.

We had many decisions to make about the type of house and location we wanted. We chose a new-build in Conwy town. The move-in date was 17th September, but then the house was nowhere near ready! The move was put on hold for three weeks and we had a holiday in Cornwall. We moved in on 8th October – no farm animals, no daily jobs and no mud! Bob joined Conwy Bowling Club and we both joined Conwy Camera Club, which has been so rewarding.
