The "heavy mob" cleared a lot of sycamore, etc. but I've not been on the pier to see whether they have yet cleared the trees which were obstructing the "Llandudno" sign.  Has anybody noticed? 
 

Yes Blodyn we helped clear the one's from the zig-zag path last Wednesday and then the Council work party came back on Thursday last and cleared the sycamores which were along the bank by the sign
The ones on the sea side of Marine Drive that block the view of the LLANDUDNO flower bed from the Pier are still there, I think?

Good work on clearing the trees alongside the Colonnade road though, looks so much better.

CCBC were there this morning.

The vista from the end of the pier is much improved.

There was a good turn out for the Family Fun Day in Happy Valley this afternoon - and glorious weather, too.  Hopefully the Daffodil Capital has got off to a good start.

Nice to see Barbiroli there.

That's not the bit I mean though, Bri. Im talking about the view of the LLANDUDNO flower bed from the end of the Pier, which is still obscured by undergrowth, as you can see in this photo I took this morning:

Well I did not realise it was filled in with concrete these days.

Had it not been then I guess it would have been a perfect location to plant some of those daffodil bulbs.

Even a few lavender bushes would look more like it !
Sorry I never got as far as the fun day yesterday-- let's just call it due to inconsiderate people mucking me about. :(

Thanks for the photo, Dave, I'll pass on the message. 

Bri, I've been told that the sign was concreted with the intention of placing containers of plants along the letters.

The Friends of Happy Valley will be having another working party on Wednesday 31 October, meeting at Headlands Hotel at 11.00 am. 

The plan is to:
tidy up the roof of the colonnade,
clear weeds and the drainage channels and drains,
tackle the woodier weeds
and, if there are enough people, have a go at some daffodil planting too.

All welcome!

The Friends of Happy Valley have been working hard on the top of the Colonnades - see the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login for the latest photos.

The working party discovered some drains that had become so blocked with soil that their existance had been forgotten, contributing to water damage to the Grade II listed structure.  Thanks to the efforts of all those involved, the drains are now running freely.

Friends of Happy Valley Working Party

Sunday 18 November, 1.00 pm onwards

Meet by the cafe to plant daffodils


There are still lots of daffodils to plant and time is running out.  If you can help for even a short time, please come along and join in.  If you have a trowel or a bulb planter which you can bring it may be useful but if not just come along - any help will be greatly appreciated.

Went for a walk though Happy Valley at Dusk last night and noticed that 11 of the 20 globe lights along the Colonnade from Grand Hotel to Happy Valley were either broken or missing. I have asked CCBC to fix them:
