Thanks for that Bri, I can't see the point in having two of the same ice cream shops in such a small town though, but they must know what they are doing. Perhaps they will make the present one into just a cafe.

Meleri. Carrie Parisella is now involved in the business and seems to be the one with new ideas.....

It was reported a couple of weeks ago that he was opening opposite Edwards of Conwy in the High Street.
You posted it Dave R on 16 Sept.
That's right, Stan. I believe the Chapel may be used for storage/restoration, whilst the High St shops are there display the items for sale.

I hope what you have heard is true Dave, it's exactly what Conwy needs   ;D Has anyone heard what is opening in the old Fruit & Fibre shop opposite the main bus stop in Lancaster Square? There appears to be a chiller fridge, hope it's not going to be another takeaway.
I think the old Fruit and Fibre shop is now called Sandwich Express. So there you are. Don't know if it's open yet as have not been in town for a while. Good to see the building occupied and in use anyway.

Conwy was absolutely buzzing just now, a full two days before the Conwy Feast. Big queues to see the likes of the worst house in Britain or whatever tourist trap it is. If only if only Llandudno was 'allowed' something similar.

In other news the amount of dog mess on the footpath to the quay is a disgrace it literally stinks. Full of flies as well.
I don't understand why those parasites from Fuhrer security don't park themselves up there for an afternoon they'd make a packet  ££$

Yes please have The Feast Llandudno, It is a nightmare for Conwy residents, packing thousands of people in such a small space is a joke. Streets already blocked, parking even more of a nightmare than usual. Most of locals are leaving town for a few days.

Had a great time at the Conwy Food Fest tonight,  yes itís not cheap, but no one is forcing anyone to buy anything are they?
A very varied range of food on offer, not just your usual burgers etc.
Also, there was a FREE festival of light in St Maryís church. It was a beautiful show of light and live music, if it doesnít move you, you donít have a soul. 
Excellent night all in all.

It was the annual Conwy Half Marathon today with about 3,000 entrants and the course went along the main road to Llandudno.    Then it continued to the Pier and around the Marine Drive before returning back to Conwy along the main road again.
I saw the start and then went to Maesdu Bridge to take some more photos.    It's a well organised race and I saw one competitor running in a Gorilla suit, hope that the person made it to the end.

The powers that be are intending to close St Michael's Catholic Church in Conwy in February. Not because of lack of worshippers or lack of funding, but difficulty in finding a priest  &shake& Yet planning is intended to extend the Catholic Church in Llandudno Junction to include a Church Hall which Conwy already has and is in regular use. One of the main attractions in Conwy are the wonderful Italian Marble Stations of the Cross & Crucifixion in the grounds of the Church, I wonder what will happen to them  :(
Bet the local developers are circling like vultures already for this prime sight. What an absolute disgrace.

I haven't been down for a look yet ME but I like your clock  :D

If anyone is interested in the new Cultural Hub being built on the Old Bodlondeb School site there is lots of details on Planning Application 0/44764 on CCBC Planning Portal.  Excavation works are due to start March this year. I'm sad to see part of the proposed site goes beyond the existing site, where the parking turning area goes into Bodlondeb Park where the large Horse Chestnut Trees are. Many of the trees are to be taken down due to disease, but some are to be taken down as they may later become diseased. As a child every year I looked forward to collecting the conkers and the ensuing conker fights, as I'm sure many other children did. I'm feeling very sad about this, surely those trees not diseased can be left alone  :(

Do those trees have any Tree Preservation Orders ( TPO's ) on them Meleri?

Shame to be chopping down trees but there is more awareness now about disease than there used to be - back then trees died and fell down, there was no tree euthenasia (spelling?).

On the subject of conkers - I used to collect mine off a tree in Bodnant that had pink flowers - the tree is in Furnace meadow which opened to the public last April - the conkers were harder - that was 60 years ago!  As a guide there now I relate this to visitors and whilst I expect children not to know about playing conkers, I find that many parents also haven't a clue what I am talking about (grandparents are fully aware, though!) - you make a hole in the conker, thread a shoelace through it and then bash your mate's similar conker on a string, taking turns until one breaks!

Health & Safety has destroyed many of the past-times we had as kids, yet does not seem too disturbed about kids eyesight and hearing being destroyed by spending all their time on their X-Box or listening on their MP3's!
