Not local, but a definite contender for the Special Award.

The contractors, hired by Anglesey Council carried out the work earlier in the week during heavy downpours
After inspection of the pitch, Caergybi FC manager Dale Moffat was far from impressed.  ref DP

PITCH PERFECT   :'(       :'(

Red-faced council bosses have told contractors to sort out the damage they did when they rendered a football pitch unplayable with their grass cutting machines.

The pitch is on land owned by the Isle of Anglesey County Council who arrange for the pitch to be maintained.
Cllr Trefor Lloyd Hughes, former Football Association of Wales President, said he had asked the contractor to revisit the site.
He said: "Having received complaints on Saturday about the damage at the field I have requested the contractor, via the council, to make good the damage made by them to the satisfaction of Caergybi FC.

"I am also led to believe that there could be new contractors soon due to the contract coming to an end."


"Some remedial works have already been undertaken and more will be required.

“We recognise the hard work of volunteers in running a local football teams, like Caergybi FC, and would like to apologise to all associated with the club for the damage caused to the pitch.”
Caergybi FC manager Dale Moffat thanked football fans for their support in the past few days.  ref DP

I propose the Special Award for the week goes to Mostyn Estates. At a CCBC meeting this week the safety of pavements on Mostyn Street were discussed, apparently £200,000 has been set aside for a scheme of renewal & repair. The Council sent out 35 letters to businesses, shop owners & leaseholders as part of the pavements are privately owned, to ask them if they would contribute to the scheme. 10 people responded to the letters & only 4 agreed to contribute. The first phase is starting with the pavements from The Carlton Pub down to Cafe Nero and most of the the pavements from the shop frontage to the edge of the verandas are privately owned and are in bad repair, some are owned by Mostyn Estates. When the Council approached them their reply was, they had no intention of contributing anything and that it was the Councils responsibility. So you see fellow Council Tax payers the biggest landlord in Llandudno are expecting us to pay for repairs on their properties. Shame on you Mostyn Estates.
By the way if you fall & hurt yourself on these privately owned areas, don't go blaming and try & claim from the Council, you know who to go for  ;)

Thanks Meleri that's typical of Mostyn Estates.    I'm still waiting for them to dip into their coffers to pay for the Victorian street lamps and promenade shelters that they promised many years ago

Hugo a few years ago an elderly person tripped over a slab outside Burtons ,when I phoned Mostyn est they said so much is the shop so much Mostyns and then the councils , Mostyns don't mind taking the big rents in Llandudno but don't like taking responobility. Look at the old youth club 😡

This is what Mr Edward Hiller said in July 2013 about the Promenade shelters, but that was only 5 years ago so we'll have to wait a bit longer, probably a lot longer     

"And Mostyn Estates managing director Edward Hiller said in addition to offering to make a financial contribution, the company had been able to supply the county council with the plans for the original shelters.

“We found plans dated 1899 in a desk drawer in the offices and these will be used as the template for the design of the new shelters which will mean they will look pretty authentic.

“We are prepared to put money towards the cost of the shelter and it would be good if other businesses or private individuals in the town were willing to match us pound for pound and do the same,” he added. "

Hugo about 4 years ago I was on the prom with the dog ,got chatting to !!!!! Sorry don't want to mention his name but he has done very well for himself with his job , he told me that the Council had the funding for 4 new shelters ,so one wonders is that money still in the accounts ,the shelter on deganwy prom is similar to the design for our prom ,after the deganwy Storm the shelter there has been rebuilt . This chap has nothing to do with Ccbc now .

If it hasn't been done by now Norman, I think we can write those shelters off as well as the promises from Mostyn Estates for the Victorian street lamps on the promenade.
On a more positive note that shelter on Deganwy promenade looks really impressive and well done to all those who were involved in the project
