Until the other day when I walked past I hadn't realised just how scruffy Venue Cymru has become. Desperate for a clean up and some anti fungal spray on those once white walls.

Strangely it draws you eye away from the Grand. Maybe that's the idea!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day when I had a walk on the West Shore at Llandudno and the only blot on the landscape was this " Arty Farty" sculpture.     What a complete waste of money
Even when it was first put there it was awful and should now be confined to Arch Motors scrap yard and that old Water Board building in the background isn't much better either.
Just compare that piece of metal rubbish to the Mussel Sculpture at Conwy Quay.

Hadn't seen that before, but it does uncannily resemble a prop from a horror movie...

I'm sure that you are more appreciative of the arts than I am Ian,  but just in case you don't fully appreciate the significance of this sculpture have a read of this notice.
I still don't get it, even when  I can read what it is meant to be.       ???

The Conwy Sculpture on the other hand needs no written explanation whatsoever.      $good$

When that 'sculpture ' first appeared I asked a councillor what it was meant to be and the reply was "A shelter for cyclists". Do you wonder we are in the state we are in?

I've seen work going on in the Grand Theatre, but just basic repairs, I think.

I went to Eirias Park today and was disappointed to find the burnt remains of the bonfire scattered over the weed and mud of the disused boating lake.
What was once a magnet to holidaying children is now a sad festering smelly weed and litter covered combination of thick mud and a little water.
It's no wonder Porth Eirias was designed to look the way it does, it was to blend in with the rest of the decay in the surrounding area.

The Boating Lake area at Eirias Park won't be like that for long as Conwy Council are intending to develop it as a 3G football pitch.

I remember reading in a planning application a few years ago that the CCBC said that the Great Crested Newts had been "parachuted" into that boating lake so there shouldn't be any development of any kind there unless something has happened in the meantime.
