I was surprised this year to find a certain well-known emporium absent from the pier. Hope Sports Direct didn't have it shut down!

Ha, no Orme Mac.
The increasing costs on the pier meant that it was prudent to make it an online business only.
However, I was delighted to see how many of my regular customers prefer to phone me or order by mail. 
The pier is primarily a food & drink, plus rides environment now, and probably always should have been to be honest.  That's what I expect to find on seaside piers anyway!

I'm enjoying my (semi) retirement.

So much for the token system on the pier  - Was on the pier on Saturday and overheard  the attendant on  the swing ride next to the trampolines say to two customers 3 tokens but you cant buy them from here - just give me £2 cash...

Good news all!
MP Marine, the specialist engineering company are back at the pier.
They have around 3 months of work to do apparently.

That looks like expensive work.

Waverley in dry dock for repairs following her collision with the prom at Rothesay on Friday.

After our recent discussion on tourism grants, I was surprised to read that the pier does not qualify.

Restoration work has started on Llandudno Pier as part of a major project to ensure its future.
This phase of work will see £150,000 spent on metal work underneath the pier - a slice of more than £1m that is earmarked on restoration work over seven years.

There could be an additional £200,000 spent this year if investigation reports on the metal work around the two entrances are unfavourable.
Owner Adam Williams said he would rather spend the money on attractions but securing the base had to the priority.
“The money is all coming from us, there are no grants involved in this.”

Mr Williams is eligible for another £500 from CCBC if he could be persuaded to reopen the toilets in the 'Golden Goose.'

That's the CCBC responsibility Bri to provide facilities for our visitors. It would cost Alan a great deal more than £500 a year to keep his toilets in the amusement arcade in a fit state for the public to use. CCBC need to look at their toilet closure program again.  The facilities on North Parade closed just to save the cleaning bill and Rates would be a good place to start especially as the one's in Happy Valley are only open if the Cafe is open.

According to the town council's website, the pier are claiming 2 x £500 anyway.
