What's Llandudno Like Right Now?
« Reply #-1 on: September 01, 2010, 02:17:29 PM »
This is an idea for a thread which I've seen used on caergybi.com, in which Llandudno residents can pass on all those little snippets of information, news, gossip, weather etc that aren't really important enough for their own thread but helps to give those people living away from the town a feel for what its like in Llandudno right now. People can add in photos to their posts, if desired. I'll kick things off below.

The August Bank Holiday was probably the busiest day of the Season here in Llandudno, the town centre, promenade and pier were absolutely jam packed with people. Good to see everyone enjoying themselves and all the town's traders doing well.

Couple of photos:

Something was going on in Upper Mostyn Street about 4pm yesterday. 3 police cars, 1 paramedic and an ambulance were at the flat next to the B W Ryder shop.

Well, the weather has been getting better every day this week - blazing sunshine, feeling very warm, and the town still very busy with visitors. Im enjoying a coffee outside cafe culture, what a lovely day

I hear that the old Fruit & Veg shop (The Good Life?) on Upper Mostyn Street (mext to the Con Club) is to become a Mens Barber.

Where's this rough weather come from? Blowing a gale and bucketing down at the moment!  Z@@

When has it been any different Dave?
I've been keeping records of my shop takings in relation to the weather per day.
As you know, my living is intrinsically linked to the weather (as is Mike's on his Golf Course)
My records show that over the last 42 days, there were only SIX which I could consider to be great weather.

The Great British Summer eh?  ...and its forecast to be like this for a good while yet!   :weeping:

Well, you are halfway up a pier mate!

In town, the weather has been pretty good. I've been able to sit out cafes every weekday for the past month, bar one day I think.  D)

I'm Jealous Dave....what a great life you lead.  Z**
The wind has been the main factor, and has caused havoc on the pier, 
As you say, Mrs Fester agrees....the wind does not really reach Mostyn St..

Lot of building work going on in the basement of the St Georges Hotel on the St Georges Place side (where the old health club was) and they've ripped out the garden along there too.

It's a beautiful sunny Sunday morning with blue sky and blue sea.
(I have to admit it rained quite heavily earlier on).

Yes, it's turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon, Llandudno is packed with people.

Fester pointed out to me that the Cable Car/Cabin Lift is closed yet again, yet it didnt seem that windy to me.  :huh1:

The Gresham pub was also closed, has that gone bust again?  :o

Dave,
The Gresham was open and quite busy tonight and last night...
Strange that it was closed on a Sunday afternoon though?
