Notice a lot of film crew vehicles at West Shore tonight.

Anyone know what is going on ?

Sorry Mull, not much at the moment but it looks a similar set up to the Eddie Izzard film (see previous page) 
 One of the trucks is from PKE  film and TV lighting Co..... You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Thanks for posting those photos Steve and the first one is truly mind blowing and the photographer has captured the scene just as it is.

Those idiots at CCBC that agreed to the environmentally disastrous sea defence in the 1990's should be made to go to see the results of their mistakes

Think you are going to have a rough winter !

I see Hollins had a tree down ,hope you have all been safe there. Not unusual to get storms at this time of the year, remains of hurricanes coming across the Atlantic but I think this year has been exceptional. It is only 21 September but it seems like autumn has been with us for a few weeks now.
After the exceptional heat in May,June and July the weather went downhill very fast here on Mull. We returned from holiday in Cornwall on the 30 July and since then we have not sat out on our sun loungers once. Usually manage 2 or 3 days each week but this year it seems to have been day after day of wind and rain.

Stay safe everyone.

It's been an interesting year, weather-wise.  Over the course of 12 months the weather tends to level out, and we had an unusually long period during the summer with no rain and no wind.  The early part of the year was quite a bit colder than usual, too, so the heatwave was predictable.  But I believe we can expect a higher than usual rainfall this Autumn combined with stronger than average winds overall.

An application has gone in for an extension & improvements to the Westshore Beach Cafe. If anyone is interested in having a look at the plans & photomontage it's application 0/45564 on the Planning Portal. As I'm a frequent user of this cafe I welcome the improvement & they look pretty good to me, as at times it can be quite a squash in this very small but popular cafe  :)

A bit more on the Westshore beach cafe revamp, originally mentioned on the cafe etc. topic, everything seems positive, however not mentioned, is the plan for block bookings, weddings* etc. involving late night openings, the improvements will be a great asset to Westshore, but those living close to the cafe, are understandingly worried and are against these plans*

 West Shore Beach Cafe revealed they have submitted an application to Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) planning committee for a major overhaul of their beach front site.
The new plans would see an extension of the front and side of the cafe with the front itself predominantly glass allowing visitors to fully enjoy the views, new staff and toilet facilities downstairs along with a new, bigger kitchen and takeaway area.

The extensions would see the capacity at the cafe doubled - the new designs will be able to house 85 people inside and 56 outside (currently 42 and 36 respectively).

This hopefully will go part way to solving the problems, caused by Arriva making the seemingly unnecessary changes mentioned below,

Some news for West Shore residents as bus services get set to return to the area early next year.
From January 27, the number 5 and X5 services, that run from Bangor through to Llandudno, will now provide links through to West Shore.

The newly extended service will also see an increase in the number of buses on the road, with an additional four buses per hour in each direction, running along Gloddaeth Avenue.

The 5 and X5 bus will now also run in the evening Monday to Saturday until 11.30 pm, as well as providing a Sunday service between West Shore and Maesdu.

The new route comes in response to high customer demand for a service to West Shore after the number 12 service was shortened earlier this year.

Llandudno residents were left outraged after changes to the number 12 bus service came into affect in March which saw the service terminate at the the Wetherspoons at the Old Palladium Cinema rather than West Shore.   ref Pioneer

Hope the residents don't complain about the single deck buses like they did about the double deck ones spoiling 'their' view.

According to rumor, one resident of the newly refurbished Admiral house complained about the buses, waiting at the Westshore terminus, I was never sure if it were true or not, and always thought that Arriva would not make these changes based on someone who had only recently moved in, when the terminus had been there for years, however just today, someone told me, that the complainant was trying to sell his flat, bought as an investment, and some of the viewers did not like the buses spoiling the area/view, but has since sold the flat ?  :-\

The No12 service, was fantastic, the route and frequency excellent, we can only hope the new system will come close, another point the new terminus for the No12 opposite Weatherspoons is causing a lot of congestion, not to mention drivers seen entering said premises :o  and complaints of drivers using the central reservation of The Avenue as a makeshift toilet. :o

The Arriva drivers seemed to have access to the toilet block at the West Shore terminus. I would have thought they'd try to reach an agreement to use the 'facilities' at the Palladium. Never understood why they couldn't turn at the second roundabout and spend their laid up time parked at the stop next to the car park. Certainly in the summer they seem to run a few extra buses to make up for any lost time leading to two or three buses sitting waiting for their time to depart.

Those affected by the change, could not understand why they were necessary, the facilities and parking at Westshore were ideal,
suitable for residents and visitors, the distance saved is negligible, considering that the majority of buses use the main turning point, part way down Gloddaeth Ave, which is approximately four hundred yards short of the original terminal.

Drivers were advised to use the facilities in the car park opposite the Cottage Loaf, which added to the congestion, as drivers had to lock their vehicle whilst unattended, there were complaints of buses driving past because there was no room to pick up passengers, this resulted in some drivers using the Palladium, which raised the question of alcohol.

These changes have never made sense to the Westshore residents, there does not seem to be any significant financial saving, plus the added congestion to an already busy part of town.

Last year whilst waiting for a bus on Glodaeth Avenue, there were a couple of people at the stop monitoring the buses on both sides of the avenue, counting the No. of passengers on the bus and waiting at the stops. I enquired as to reason the but they were evasive and reticent and moved away. I later discovered that they were from the flats by the terminus and were objecting to the buses at the terminus, some with their engines running. Later the
No 12 stopped terminating there :'(
