Now we know why they were growing those strange looking grasses up the ramps.   :D

I noticed today that the Skip's roof is properly open again, and all the building materials, fencing, etc, removed.

I was looking at the work going on to refurbish the Prom between the Pier and the Toad last Sunday. Looks to me like it is still a fair way off completion, think they will struggle to get it all finished for next month.

This is what's happening on Colwyn Bay beach to get it ready for Easter
A section of the beach has been closed while heavy machinery start work.....    &shake&  is this another annual event  :(

Conwy Council say the work, which they describe as "reinstating the beach profile", will be completed before the start of the Easter holidays on April 15.

So far, the beach has seen more than 220,000 metres cubed of sand imported onto the beach for a new era of tourism and to combat erosion.            You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

That's going to be a regular thing as the current there moves in an easterly direction.     On the Old Colwyn beach the height of the sand fluctuates with each tide and I've seen sand levels increase by  3 feet in just a short space of time
The stone groynes don't appear to be as effective as those old fashioned wooden ones that they were so keen to replace

I hope the parking charges cover the cost of maintaining the beach otherwise council tax payers are subsidising the day trippers.

A shame after all the the money the council (us) invested in this CIC....  $angry$

Colwyn Bay Watersports is a Community Interest Company ( CIC ) working with Conwy County Borough Council to deliver watersports tuition from the Porth Eirias site.

A PURCHASER is being sought for Colwyn Bay Water Sports centre which has gone into liquidation.

The centre, based at Porth Eirias, offered sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and power boating tuition through a Royal Yachting Association scheme. It also hired out sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing kit. Now a buyer is being sought for the name, goodwill and assets of the centre, which include a substantial quantity of water sports equipment including wetsuits, buoyancy aids, kayaks, windsurfing equipment and boats.

Many schools and community groups have benefited from the centre's activities. The skills of volunteers have been developed with many gaining qualifications and going on to work in the industry and even compete at national level. Ian McCulloch, a liquidator at Begbies Traynor the business recovery company handling the case, said: "It is regrettable a positive, long standing community initiative like this has arrived at this position. The directors decided to take action now, during the quieter winter season, to avoid disruption for people who have come to see it as a popular feature on the beachfront in the spring and summer months. We are optimistic that there will be interest out there from people to acquire the assets.”

Taffy Osborne, Managing Director, said: “It is with great regret that we have to close. It has truly been a pleasure to provide many thousands of on water sessions to people from all walks of life.” Interested parties should call Begbies Traynor directly on 01772 202 000.                                             ref Pioneer
