ABOUT 60 people are being made redundant from a Llandudno research centre.

Due to the pressures of the Covid-19 pandemic, global Geoscience firm CGG Robertson has begun the consultation process for axing jobs at its facility in Llanrhos.

According to representatives from Unite - the UK’s largest trade union - jobs affected include highly skilled scientists and technicians.
The job losses have been described as a ‘devastating blow’ for workers and the area.

Daryl Williams, Unite Regional Officer, said: “This news is a devastating blow for North West Wales which is already suffering badly from the collapse in the leisure and tourism sector as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic.”

The oil and gas consultancy company are citing the fall in global oil prices as an underlying cause behind their decision.

A TOWN’s bloom efforts have been put on hold due to Covid-19.

Due to ongoing concerns associated with the virus and continued social distancing requirements, Llandudno Town Council has found it necessary to cancel this year’s Llandudno Bloom competition.

AROUND 2,500 workers are set to lose their jobs at builders' merchant Travis Perkins.

The company - which has stores in Wrexham, Mold, Deeside, Rhyl, Llandudno and Caernarfon - said the decision comes as it expects the recession to hit the trade for at least two years.

LLANDUDNO'S war memorial is to undergo maintenance.

Barriers will be in place around the memorial on the promenade while work is carried out. The work will start on June 22 and will last about 10 to 14 days.

Cllr Angela O’Grady, Llandudno mayor, said: "The War Memorial was created 98 years ago and, has fared extremely well during that time in all weather conditions. But having had the current condition of the monument assessed, it was clear that essential maintenance was required urgently.

"It is good to know that the work planned will ensure the War Memorial will stand for at least another 100 years so we can all continue to remember the fallen together”.

The work involves carefully removing the bronze name plates and cleaning the reverse of the plaques and wall area, removing existing fixings and replacing with new fixings and re-bonding the plaques back in place.

The War Memorial was designed by architect Sidney Colwyn Foulkes, who was based in Colwyn Bay and designed many of the area’s finest buildings of the early 20th century.                                             ref Pioneer

update on above............

LLANDUDNO Promenade was lit up in the colours of the rainbow last night in support of the nation's key workers.

As with many other locations across Wales and the UK as a whole, the buildings along the promenade were lit up to show appreciation to the key workers, such as NHS staff, who have been on the frontline throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

The rainbow has become a symbol of hope since the pandemic hit the UK in March and several notable locations throughout North Wales have been lit up in its colours.

If you missed it last night, then there will be another opportunity to witness it tonight.        ref Pioneer

I had a walk on the Promenade about two weeks ago and went past the slipway by the Yachting club.     Has anything been done to the slipway as every time I went past it a few years ago it was covered in pebbles?

Nice to see the Goats taking a pride in their appearance and keeping their social distance from each other
