Not sure H & S legislation is to blame;  rather, workers who want as little to do as possible using it every opportunity they get.

I'm trying to find out if they have TPO's on them Hugo, but I don't hold much hope.

That's an interesting Fact DVT as some of the trees in question have white flowers and some pink. Could that be the reason some cases had large prickles and others none.

What I can remember is getting some large bruises whenever the opposition missed the conker and hit my hand instead.

I hear Drew Pritchard has plans for apartments in the old Chapel he has bought, hope he is sorting out some parking that area is a nightmare already with all the holiday cottages  :o

Drew Pritchard's shop opened today, he sold me a nice illuminated clock for £75, nice shop, items of all prices in there, worth a look!
We visited on Monday, his shop is a nice addition to the High Street.

Why JD Wetherspoons' latest bid to come to Conwy could still be turned down.

I noticed a sign up in the window of the old David Owen Butcher shop in Bangor Road today, Issac Simeon Artisan Patisserie will be opening soon. Never heard of him so I Googled it and he has another place in Colwyn Bay, has anyone been to that shop ? The reviews are good and the cakes & bread look delicious on the photographs, bang goes my waistline if they taste as good  ;D

Passed it many times, always thought it a little odd that an Artisan Patisserie would exist in Colwyn Bay!

Now, what is reason behind Conwy Pirates Weekend moving to Rhos on Sea?

Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may have been given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it.

Now, what is reason behind Conwy Pirates Weekend moving to Rhos on Sea?
This article from the Pioneer 11/ 4 .....
Conwy Pirate Festival to set sail if community fails to find £8,000 shortfall.
Mr Williams said: “It costs £6,000 to hold an absolute bare bones event and to do it it justice it’s closer to £10,000.

“The tragedy in the MEN arena last year has driven security costs for an event this size through the roof.

“The only way we can pay for the festival is through stall fees on the quay. Even at the most generous estimate that’s £2,000 maximum if we keep the stalls as local as possible and allow charities space.

“I don’t think it’s fair for us to spend £8,000 of our own money for a great event on behalf of the businesses in the town when we won’t benefit financially.”

In response to a letter sent to 60 traders in Conwy at the start of the year, the event has only received the support of two of the town’s businesses and a further member of the community. Last year, a crowdfunding campaign for the festival raised just £60.

Mr Williams added: “I think it would be crying shame for Conwy to lose its only big quayside event in the summer when if the whole town put in for the event, the cost would be nothing.”

Many thanks SteveH. I, and the neighbours had missed that piece of information. It's good news for Rhos, but a shame for Conwy as it was always a very busy weekend in the town.

Organisers at the annual Conwy Pirate weekend have confirmed the popular event will no longer take place at the towns quayside.
Instead, the family festival will take place in the neighbouring village of Rhos-on-Sea .
The three-day extravaganza draws upwards of 10,000 pirate enthusiasts to the area for the fun-packed weekend.

A spokesperson for the event said: “Due to numerous reasons we are unable to continue the event in the town of Conwy.

I wondered how Rhos, could handle the expense of the Pirate weekend, when Conwy could not, it would appear that the Colwyn Bay and Rhos on sea BID (Business improvement district)  You are not allowed to view links.
