Have you seen this Hugo.  Anwyl at their best. 😂.   Trying to sell up now after all these years.

The site is a White Elephant and Anwyl Construction is either stupid or deceitful

After watching Mr Bates vs. the Post Office and hearing, over many years, about deliberate obfuscation and downright lying that big companies have been found to have committed, I seriously wonder which major businesses are actually honest.

Oh Hugo the wonderful Janet. As I?ve pointed out to others and I?ve asked the wonderful MP. Robin Millar another waste of space he won?t answer me,,, the number 12 Rhyl to Llandudno service used to go along Bryn y bia rd,,  it got stopped,,  yes by Janet the snooty residents didn?t want the passengers on the top looking into the gardens 😂😂.   The MD of Arriva at the time wanted to reinstate it but it was a big No.

It seems to happen in all walks of life,  I've said it before that I don't trust building developers but you can add Building consultants to the growing list of liars.     They submit an outline planning application and if it is passed then they immediately submit another application for an amendment to the original application.      One such consultant seems to have a stock phrase in his submissions and it is that "Colwyn Heights is within easy cycling distance of the amenities of Colwyn Bay"        I wonder if he has tried cycling up and down that steep hill to justify such  a stupid comment like that?

Flytipped waste on Great Orme above 'Millionaire's Row' labelled 'horrendous' and 'disgusting'
Dumped carpets flapping in the wind were found halfway up the iconic landmark

This isn't the first time that scum have dumped litter on the Great Orme, perhaps it's time CCBC  installed a couple of CCTV cameras on the Marine Drive?

Tickets go live ahead of Waverley returning to Llandudno!
The  Paddle Steamer Waverley will return to North Wales from Monday, June 24 until Wednesday, June 26 after the "resounding" success of her sailings in 2023.

This time, for the first time this century, the world?s last seagoing paddle steamer will set sail from Holyhead.

Owner of Britain's oldest Punch and Judy has no plans to quit

THE custodian of Britain's oldest Punch and Judy show has come out swinging amid fears for the puppets' future - and says he has no plans to cancel.

Jason Codman, 55, says he has a "responsibility" to keep his booth in Llandudno running after 160 years of performances.

 ?We?ve never received funding from the council. The show covers its own costs: operating, maintaining, paying my rent and my licence.

?Crowds gather when I start the show. It?s popular, we still get a good crowd.?

Jason said he feels a lot of responsibility to keep the show going because it?s been in the family for five generations.

He said: ?We don?t make a living out of Punch and Judy. That?s not the purpose. Our motivation is the history.?

?It?s part of people?s memories. It?s an expectation Punch is going to be there [at the seaside].

?People would say Llandudno would not be the same without Punch and Judy on the promenade.?

Let's hope that it goes through now Norman and that it is for local people, but is that expecting too much?

We?ve had many meetings over the years locals can?t get the housing as they seem to give the houses to people from away, we?ve seen it on our old estate.

That's wrong Norman, local people should have a priority when it comes to housing.     Nothing seems to have changed then since I was living in Cwm Place over 50 years ago.
Even then people outside of Wales seemed to get priority for Council property and it's very wrong, especially for young local people

POLICE and an air ambulance helicopter are at the scene of an incident on Llandudno promenade.

A Wales Air Ambulance helicopter was seen landing on the promenade shortly after midday today (March 12)

A resident also reported seeing two police cars in the same area of the promenade.

Another resident said the helicopter had taken off and that they "hope the patient is okay and not too seriously hurt".

A Wales Air Ambulance spokesperson said: ?I can confirm that the Wales Air Ambulance attended an incident in the Llandudno region today (12/03/24).

"A team from Caernarfon attended by air and arrived on scene at 11:16. Our involvement concluded at 12:03.?

North Wales Police have been approached for comment.
