That was Wales for you. What the hell they thought we'd get up to if we stayed out after ten I never found out. Bangor, back then, was the last place God made and was completely dead with not a soul on the streets at night. Cafes closed at 6pm and pubs at 10pm and there were no nightclubs.
My family had a holiday caravan (trailer) near Bangor and if I wanted to go and stay there with my parents or grandmother for a weekend in term time I had to produce a letter from my Father (my Father, mark you, not my Mother or Grandmother) asking permission for me to have an exeat! I was 19 in my first year and old enough to be married with a couple of babies!
Male students at our place were not required to live under such stringent rules which we thought very unfair. One girl who got locked out of her hall of residence and was caught sleeping on the floor of a male friend's room (yes, the floor, honestly) got sent down but he didn't even get a telling off.
I don't mind telling you, Bangor was a shock to the system after the fleshpots of Manchester!
Sorry, off topic again
