Daffodils (the miniature ones) have been in flower in Bodnant Garden since before Christmas ... the full-size ones have now been in bloom for over a week ... they've bloomed before the snowdrops.  Dwarf irises in abundance, also quite a few rhododendrons.  Magnolias and camelias in bud and the Winter Garden with the coloured cornus looks fantastic.

The seasons have got mixed up, if this is global warming then let's have more!!!

Pay a visit, say hello if you find me (I'm there Wednesdays and Thursdays)!!

CCBC Cabinet meeting today discussed the Council Tax increase for 2019/2020. They recommended an increase of 9.6% not the 11.6% that had been proposed. This is only a recommendation, it will now have to go back to Scrutiny & then Full Council next month to be passed. 1% reduction in net Council Tax income equals approximately £500K, so the 2% (£1million) difference will be taken from the Capital Reserve set aside for the Future Schools Programme which is expected to start 2022, so would have been just sitting there for 3 years.

It's a shame it's closing the Neville is a good pub, had many good times in there with Pete. Needs must I suppose its a big building the overheads must be enormous and let's be honest the pub game is not what it was. There's countless Hotels, B and Bs, Travel lodge etc so residential apartments are the best way to go. I think Petes made the best decision. Still the pub will be missed.

The Pioneer's article on the Nevill...........

The Nevill, located across the road from the Llandudno train station, which currently consists of a ground floor pub, owner accommodation above and a car park to the side is set to be redeveloped into 20 "high quality" residential apartments.

Landlord Peter Jones has run The Nevill for more than 33 years but has decided to retire and following no interest in anyone wanting to take on the business he decided for the redevelopment option.

Matthew Jones Architects have now taken on the project for the new redevelopment and plans have been submitted to the council with a decision expected early this year.

Matthew Jones, director of Matthew Jones Architects in Deganwy, said: "We are really pleased to help with this exciting project.

"The building is ideally located in the centre of town, right opposite the train station, and whilst the loss of the pub is regrettable, this residential conversion will give the building and locality a new lease of life.

"Whilst preserving the traditional Victorian Architecture, we have designed a new modern ‘extension’ that respects the traditional building and conservation area."

It was snowing quite heavily on the Heights earlier on and some cars were struggling to get up the slope in Wentworth Avenue by the shops.    Luckily the snow now seems to be melting.

At the start of the '90s St John's church did very well out of selling their old schoolroom to M & S, when the latter was still enjoying its expansionist phase.  Now, with both M & S stores becoming vacant, wonder if anyone connected to the church would buy them back?  They could lease out the lower floors to smaller. niche shops and turn the upper floors into Church-based activity centres.
The closed M&S store is on the market for £2.1m - not sure if the Church has that much in the collection plate!

You mean the almighty won't provide? Actually, there's at least one member of the St John congregation who has that sort of money.
