We don't say these things often enough, but on this site we owe a debt to SteveH, our News hound who, through his prodigious selection and regular searching of the broadsheets keeps us alerted to any and all news developments locally.

Thanks, Steve;  the forum would be far poorer without you.

This hopefully will go part way to solving the problems, caused by Arriva making the seemingly unnecessary changes mentioned below,
Some news for West Shore residents as bus services get set to return to the area early next year.
From January 27, the number 5 and X5 services, that run from Bangor through to Llandudno, will now provide links through to West Shore.

Hope the residents don't complain about the single deck buses like they did about the double deck ones spoiling 'their' view.

According to rumor, one resident of the newly refurbished Admiral house complained about the buses, waiting at the Westshore terminus, I was never sure if it were true or not, and always thought that Arriva would not make these changes based on someone who had only recently moved in, when the terminus had been there for years, however just today, someone told me, that the complainant was trying to sell his flat, bought as an investment, and some of the viewers did not like the buses spoiling the area/view, but has since sold the flat ?  :-\

The No12 service, was fantastic, the route and frequency excellent, we can only hope the new system will come close, another point the new terminus for the No12 opposite Weatherspoons is causing a lot of congestion, not to mention drivers seen entering said premises :o  and complaints of drivers using the central reservation of The Avenue as a makeshift toilet. :o

From January 27, the number 5 and X5 services, that run from Bangor through to Llandudno, will now provide links through to West Shore.

The newly extended service will also see an increase in the number of buses on the road, with an additional four buses per hour in each direction, running along Gloddaeth Avenue.

The 5 and X5 bus will now also run in the evening Monday to Saturday until 11.30 pm, as well as providing a Sunday service between West Shore and Maesdu.

The new route comes in response to high customer demand for a service to West Shore after the number 12 service was shortened earlier this year.

Llandudno residents were left outraged after changes to the number 12 bus service came into affect in March which saw the service terminate at the the Wetherspoons at the Old Palladium Cinema rather than West Shore.   ref Pioneer

ST PAUL’s church, Craig-y-Don, will start its Christmas celebrations with a brass band concert.

The concert, by Holywell brass band, begins at 7.30pm on Saturday December 8. It will feature Christmas classics and seasonal surprises and includes a chance to sing along to well known carols, with mulled wine and mince pies in the interval.

While entry will be free, there will be a retiring collection to raise money for young brass players and singers.

Rev Noel Carter, rector of St Paul's Church, added: “In the current financial climate, voluntary organisations like Holywell Band and St Paul's Church, have an important part to play in helping children and young adults get access to music lessons and performance opportunities to reach their musical potential. Singing and playing an instrument is an important gift, and this concert is a small way to help a young singer or band member to go on to greater things."   ref Pioneer

When a company goes into insolvency they quite often have numerous small creditors who have no chance of ever getting their money back and it is those small creditors that I feel sorry for.     In these difficult times it is hard enough for them to trade anyway without having companies going bust on them.
Unfortunately, I have seen a number of companies going bust and in some of them there seems to be a certain trend for example:-

Mr A N Other buys a property
A limited company is formed of which Mr ANO  is the main director along with at least one other
The ltd company starts trading from that property
A written agreement is drawn out whereby the company (  that's Mr ANO )  pays a fixed amount of money to Mr A N Other for the rent or lease of the property
The company trades successfully but then for whatever reason gets into financial difficulty and gets wound up
A list of creditors is drawn up by the Administrator and that will include Mr A N Other who will become a creditor to his own company

Non preferential creditors usually end up with nothing or very little as the company has no assets, the property of course is still owned by Mr ANO and it's all perfectly legal    ???

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

Three Towns Policing Issues / Re: Police News & Announcements

Rogue traders have targeted vulnerable people in the Conwy Valley area.

A number of incidents have been reported to North Wales Police in the past week where a man and a woman have visited properties offering tree cutting services.
The two people, who are believed to be travelling in a white Land Rover Defender, are offering to undertake the work for an excessive amount of money.

Sgt Lisa Armstrong said: “We are asking people to be vigilant and are strongly advising residents, particularly the elderly, not to accept any requests from cold callers to complete any form of work at their home addresses.

Police are urging residents to be vigilant and follow three steps to ensure doorstep crime is reduced.
The three step message to the public is: If in doubt, keep them out; be prepared, be in control; and call a neighbour or the police.
