Re: New £6.4m North Wales centre for Welsh food at Bodnant

While the idea is a sound, I'm not so sure about the location. Why not put Welsh food outlets in existing shopping centres or next to supermarkets to encourage people to replace their normal everyday food purchases with local foods?  When you're doing your weekly shopping are you really going to make a special trip up to Bodnant to buy local foods instead of just hitting Tesco's as usual?

How long with those 30 jobs last if very few people make this special trip to visit?

Having got my Bus Pass I decided to visit Colwyn Bay, I get these mad impulses from time to time. All the way down Glan Y Mor Road on the trusty Number 12 we were held up by a cyclist who decided it was his democratic right to ride down the road and ignore the cycle path that had been put at great expense just 4 feet to his left. On another occasion whilst walking down the prom minding my own business, I was shouted at to get out of the f***ing way by a speeding cyclist who only concern was how fast he could get from A to B. Whilst we still have such inconsiderate people using bicycles they cannot unfortunately be allowed to mix with the General Pedestrian Public. Good on Mostyn's for telling the Council no to a cycle path down the middle of the Promenade.

Just picked up the Oxfam Unwrapped catalogue. Just an idea for the Betws-y- Coed new toilet block in these straitened times.
Page 13-- A decent loo for £50.00.
So, for £1000.00 there could be 20 new toilets, a phenomenal saving and ecological to boot !
Wouldn't hold your breath on the reality of it ! _))*

Ah now y'see that's the reason I've never wanted to go to Glastonbury, no proper clean toilets. I'd be horrified. aaa.gif

Please, then I beg you, Pendragon, do not visit a Hospital in Thailand - the public ones,are all ''Footprint style''- and certainly not convenient if wearing longer trousers.- (unless you can chat to a nice nurse, and use the staff ones!)  dontheturner

That sort of toilet arrangement is pretty common in many countries.  The Vatican still uses them, for instance.

Friend of mine once took her leg out of her trousers to use a 'footprint' toilet in France and promptly lost a shoe down it !! Don't ask why she took a leg out--the mind boggles ! ))* _))*

I went into one in Singapore Airport and it was disgusting, all I can say is that I hope that the previous occupants were not in Singapore's Airforce bomber command as they would have missed the target every time!      :-}}}
The next cubicle to it was for disabled people so I went in there and it was spotless and it was just like ours.     D)
