Apparently 'Bryn' cannot get hold of the equipment he wants. In the mean time it stands unused.

 :laugh: The area that's supposed to house a kitchen was completely bare when I looked at it a few weeks ago. Completely. It reminded me of tumbleweed drifting across the desert, except that it was pitch black, as there were no light fittings installed.

Get Gordon Ramsey, he would kick some ass, but no he wouldnt bother, he knows a loser when he sees one, or Rick Stein he is very good  on the coast, then again he has more sense.

The pics in yesterday's news showing the amount of sand on the prom around and about the pier in C. Bay makes me wonder if the main thing on the menu might be "sandwiches" :twoface: _))*

Had a look though the window into Porth Eirias the other day at the Bistro area - no sign of any work whatsoever having taken place:

We attended one of Brynís cooking demonstrations during the Conwy Feast three weeks ago and he told everybody he will be opening in January.

He didn't happen to say which "January" did he , Bri ?

I wonder with all the further work about to start in January along that stretch, i dont know whether it would be considered viable to open before it was complete. I dont think i would like to open a bistro in the middle of all that building work. It seems planning and time scale all out again. Hope its even cleared for summer  ???
If the work had been done starting October  they may have stood a chance of clearing the prom by early spring but now  :roll: who knows.
I just cant believe why and i mean WHY have they left Old colwyn promenade to the mercy of these storms. The embankment under the railway is being corroded.  Hope that rail line above is 100% secure .  All that cash spent on the Waterfront and they leave the worse affected area undone.  Dont get me wrong i have enjoyed walks and sitting with grandkids down there at the waterfront but for gods sake shouldnt we prioritise a bit more.

Driven past the skip by the sea this morning and someone is diligently cleaning the windows And by the pier feet of sand is being shovelled manually and by a digger back onto the beach.
West Shore car park is still barely accessible.
 Priorities?

I quite agree Nem! common sense and all that seems to have dissapeared. Although the  sea defence was needed near the waterfront , Old colwyn i would have thought would be as or more urgent to protect the main railway into North Wales!  Also Happy year year everyone! x
Also Deganwy needs help drove through several inches of water along main road Monday looked like a small lake worried the water would seep in. OH missed opportunity to turn around. :-X

The Railway Line embankment at Old Colwyn is the responsibility of Network Rail, rather than the Council.

The road through Deganwy is below sea level in places, so always floods during high tides. Not a lot you can do about it, really.

At least a smaller window-cleaning bill than for the originally-planned glass-clad design. Significant cost-saving there - something for the council to mention in their PR, along with the admirable "chameleon-like" qualities of zinc .  ;)
