Remember my father going on about the sea defences for the railway there in the 1950/60s. Certainly nothing new.

COLWYN Bay fireworks display will be held on bonfire night at Eirias Park.

The event will start at 7.15pm with the bonfire lighting followed by the fireworks display at 7.30pm. The bonfire will be located outside of the boating lake.

The event has been organised by Colwyn Bay town council and Colwyn Bay fire station.

A spokesperson for the town council said: “Free parking will be available at the Civic Centre, North Wales Police Headquarters (Abergele Road), Eirias Arena, and the Promenade. Disabled Parking only will be available at Eirias High School. A disabled viewing area will be provided outside the Barn (accessed via the Arena car park - gate C), please call 01492 532248 to book a space, as numbers are limited.

“Traffic through the town is expected to be busy so please allow plenty of time to park and walk into the park. Pedestrian entry will be via the main park gates, the Civic Centre driveway or the Promenade.

“Entrance will be free, but there will be a cash collection on the night, with fifty per cent of all monies collected being given by the Fire Service to local charities.

“The event will go ahead whatever the weather (unless we have to call it off on safety grounds, for example: due to strong winds from a southerly direction). Rain will not prevent the event from going ahead.”                                                      ref Pioneer

AN INVESTMENT of £1.6 million is to be made to improve the sea defences on Old Colwyn sea front.

The Welsh Government has made the commitment after calls had been made to upgrade the defences which play a vital role in protecting not only the promenade, but the A55, the main railway line and main sewerage network.

Darren Millar AM, welcomed today’s news but more would be needed for a significant upgrade.

He said: “The cash falls well short of the overall total needed for a significant upgrade to the sea defences in Old Colwyn, but it is welcome none the less.   cont  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

COLWYN Bay’s town clock should be back in place at the bottom of Station Road next Spring.

The clock was removed in early Autumn 2018 for refurbishment as it had deteriorated and was reaching a point where its structural integrity would become a concern.

A spokesperson for Colwyn Bay town council and the Andrew Fraser Memorial Clock Trust said: “An order has recently been placed with the clock manufacturer, Smith of Derby, to produce a replica clock top using elements from the original clock, mounted on a new cast iron pillar.

“This follows the successful fund raising efforts of the town council and the trustees, who have raised the £21,868 required from various grants and donations.

The memorial clock was presented to the people of Colwyn Bay by Mr and Mrs Stanley Fraser, the parents of Andrew Fraser, who died in 1984 at the age of 33.

It was erected in September 1989 by J B Joyce and Co and bore a memorial plaque to Peter Bellingham of Whitchurch, an employee of J B Joyce, who was fatally injured whilst working on the installation of the clock.                                   ref Pioneer
