Thanks for posting that photo Dave, I never get tired of seeing it.
 My Taid and Nain who lived in the nearby Penmorfa Cottages would have seen the house in its heyday.    :)  but the next generation will not be so lucky as all they will see are the flats that will be built on the site.

I've heard on the grapevine of a Local Train Enthusiast interested in setting up a model (sit on) railway track and attraction on land near the cafe on West Shore. I will keep an eye on planning applications and let you know if anything comes of it.

Finding the mains services is now what's preoccupying them.  However, things are at last starting to move.

Re: the new toilets

I was on the West Shore this afternoon and thought I would make use of this facility. I was intrigued by the notice beside the doors saying that the "minimum charge" is 20p. I can't imagine that anyone would really want to put in more than the "minimum charge". Does the CCBC think that we would put in more for a No 2 than a No 1 for instance!

Its a new Council Strategy to raise more revenue, Your Council Tax Bill will be the same in April next year when it will state the "minimum" amount.  :laugh:

What it actually means is that the mechanism accepts all coins but doesn't give change. So you could put a 50p or £1 in and that would be the charge.
