This will be 30th year the event has been organised by Conwy Beekeepers. It will be held on Friday September 13 between 9am and 4pm in Lancaster Square and the High Street which will be closed to traffic all day.

More than 20 honey plant, crafts and farmers market stalls have already booked for the event.

Peter McFadden of Conwy’s Beekeepers said: "This year's honey fair is a landmark for local beekeepers and it has become a national event. People come from far and wide to buy a year's supply of Welsh honey. Some buy a jar from every beekeeper. It's our favourite day of the year.”                       ref Pioneer

A CALL for volunteers to clean up Conwy Morfa beach has been made.                                         ref Pioneer

The Mayor of Conwy cllr Goronwy Edwards and the town council have organised a litter picking session on the beach on Saturday September 21 between 10am and 1pm.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Conwy Morfa beach car park near the caravan park.

Cllr Eva Roberts said: “As part of World Clean up day we felt it is important we do something which involves the community and engage groups and individuals."

“Cleaning the beach seemed an appropriate task to take on, particularly as the oceans have so much plastic floating in them and this with other material is being continually washed ashore.”

If you would like to come along email info@conwytowncouncil.gov.uk or turn up on the day to receive your safety equipment.

It's a great cause and it would be nice if all communities carried out something similar and it would certainly help to readdress the problems people are creating with their attitude to waste disposal

Are we going too far down the path of PC and  H & S  with the last comment "turn up on the day to receive your safety equipment"         What are they expecting to find other than litter.        Some time ago Fester did something similar on his own initiative and I bet he did the job just as well without all the modern day requirements

It may not be PC but could anyone on JSA be asked to swell the ranks of the volunteers?
