Colwyn Bay Graffiti At Bryn Euryn Summit Now Removed!

Llandudno...Opening date for Llandudno drive-through coronavirus testing centre revealed.

 From....https://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/opening-date-north-wales-drive-18163283

At last, this is long overdue!

A drive-through coronavirus testing center in North Wales is ready to open, it has been announced.
Vaughan Gething, the Welsh Government's minister for health and social services, confirmed during today's Welsh Government briefing that the site in Llandudno will open on Wednesday, April 29.
The testing center, located on the Builder Street coach park, will begin by testing critical workers.
Only critical workers displaying symptoms of the virus will be referred for testing, said Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, which includes NHS staff, police, fire and ambulance services, and care home workers.
Those who need to be tested will be able to drive on to the site and self-swab without leaving their vehicles.
Teresa Owen, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s executive director of public health, has led work to set up the center on behalf of the North Wales Resilience Forum.
She said: “The new drive-through testing center in Llandudno will play an integral part in our response to Coronavirus in North Wales.
“The site will greatly increase our regional testing capability and complements several existing Health Board Community Testing Units (CTUs) for critical workers and NHS staff across the region. Together, these facilities will help safeguard the public, provide the best possible outcome for patients, and keep essential services running.”
The Builder Street drive-through testing center is being developed in partnership with the UK Government and Deloitte to deliver the UK-wide coronavirus testing of critical workers.
Key partners on the North Wales facility also include the Welsh Government, Public Health Wales, North Wales Police, Conwy County Borough Council, and other Resilience Forum partners.
North Wales Police's Assistant Chief Constable, Sacha Hatchett, who chairs the North Wales Resilience Forum, added, “The demand for Coronavirus testing amongst our critical workers is growing. The site on Builder Street represents the next phase of our testing response to support critical workers in vital areas of public service.
“We have mobilized quickly with the support of partners and the military to create a suitable drive-through center which increases our testing capacity in North Wales. This new center allows us to provide Coronavirus testing in a convenient, timely, and, above all else, a safe way for all involved in the process.”
The testing center will not pose a risk to the public as stringent infection prevention measures are in place to protect people, staff, and the wider community, said the health board.

Colwyn Bay Guide To Walks Around Colwyn Bay!

This wonderful picture of an original leaflet was recently shared online. Once upon a  time when people cared about Colwyn Bay people flocked to visit here, since the council has been in charge it's a Ghosttown! 

Colwyn Bay Why Won't Dog Walkers Take Their Doggy Bags Home?


This photograph was taken buy and Old Colwyn Resident, since the Coronavirus epidemic, the council sealed all public bins due to the risk of infection to workers emptying the bins. However, the picture above is identical to all around the county, as dog walkers just dump the bags rather than take them home! We have dogs and our dog mess goes in the bin at home, we don.t just dump it! Sadly there are many responsible dog owners and those who are giving everyone else a bad name. It is about time these people cleaned up their act!

Colwyn Bay Fire Brigade Called to Princess Courts Flats For The 3rd Time In A Week!

North Wales .....Outlaw all second home use in Wales until coronavirus outbreak is over, senior doctors urge


The sooner this happens the better, they should turn off all of the utilities also with very big fines if people break it.

From..https://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/outlaw-second-home-use-wales-18136471

Senior doctors want the Welsh Government to outlaw all second home use until the coronavirus pandemic has subsided.
The open letter, which has been signed by 15 clinicians from across Wales, urging the First Minister to make holiday home use illegal and outlines the danger of non-essential travel "in relation to the current public health emergency".
Mark Drakeford has already hinted that regulations on people traveling to Welsh second homes could be tightened, with an announcement expected by the weekend.
All non-essential travel, including to second homes, is already illegal under the existing coronavirus guidelines.
But according to the open letter, there are concerns that the existing rules contained within The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Wales) Regulations 2020 are "insufficient" and need bolstering.
According to the senior GP's, covering authorities from Anglesey to Wrexham, Bridgend, and Ceredigion, the Welsh Government should:
  • Make second home use illegal until the risk posed by Covid-19 has abated, even when lockdown restrictions begin to ease in other areas of Wales and the UK, in order to prevent a “second peak”.
  • Prolong lockdown measures in rural tourist hotspot areas of Wales, specifically targeting non-essential travel into these areas.
  • Empower police to enforce the above, with the power to compel those breaching these restrictions without reasonable excuse to return to their primary residence.
The letter adds: "Tourism and holiday home use facilitate non-essential movement into rural areas, increasing the population and thus placing additional pressures on local health and emergency services," states the open letter, warning that north and west Wales could see a "second peak" unless such measures are followed.
"This could happen at the very worst of times - when staff resilience will be at rock-bottom, after weeks and months of pressure, and when global supplies of medical and personal protective equipment have been depleted.
"We appreciate the economic value of tourism, but this cannot be at the cost of the health of our rural population.
"We hope that the Welsh Government will show the value of devolution by being prepared to act in a swift, innovative, agile, and decisive manner to safeguard the people of Wales.
"Where necessary this must diverge from Westminster to meet our nation’s unique needs and challenges. Let history show that the Government of Wales acted when it mattered the most."
Arfon AM, Sian Gwenllian, has added her voice to those calling for stricter guidelines on those using second homes in Wales during the Covid-19 outbreak.
She said: "The Labour Government has said they would be guided by the science. So now they must listen to the clinicians and act quickly to protect local communities in Wales.
Arfon AM Sian Gwenllian has been getting feedback from farmers in her constituency
Arfon AM Sian Gwenllian 
“While the vast majority of people have taken a sensible approach, staying in the primary residences, for weeks we have been calling for tougher measures to stop the few irresponsible individuals who have ignored the rules traveling
"It is a shame that the Labour Welsh Government has taken so long to react that senior doctors now feel it necessary to go public in order for them to be listened to.
“We are asking our front line NHS heroes to work night and day, putting their lives on the line to fight this virus. Mark Drakeford and Vaughan Gething must now listen to them and act quickly to keep them and our constituents safe.”
A Welsh Government spokesperson said: "The regulations currently in force allow people to leave their main home only for a very limited number of reasons – which do not include traveling to a second home.
"We will continue to look in detail at the regulations to see whether there are any areas which need to be tightened or areas where we could make changes.”

Llandudno...Ex-soldier jailed for trying to murder neighbours dies after getting coronavirus!


An ex-soldier who was jailed for life for trying to kill his retired neighbors has died of coronavirus.
Nigel and Marjorie Gibbs from Llandudno, were lucky to survive after being stabbed repeatedly in August 2012, in an attack aimed at "teaching them a lesson".
Tierney had been a prisoner at HMP Altcourse, and the 74-year-old was understood to have had existing health issues before contracting Covid-19.
On April 3, when his condition worsened he was discharged to Aintree Hospital, where he was isolated on ward. He was diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 5 and passed away on April 7.
It is a matter for the coroner to determine the official cause of death. His next of kin had been informed, as well as the police and the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.
Mr. Gibbs, who was then 66, and living in Llys Dulyn, was using a power saw outside when he was suddenly confronted by Tierney who held a knife to his face and said he was going to teach him a lesson.
Sean Hedley Tierney, 74, who was jailed for life for trying to kill his elderly neighbours, has died of Covid-19.

Llandudno...Further action taken to deter people flouting lockdown rules at Conwy Nature Reserve!


The gates to the RSPB are locked, I know as I volunteer there. so no one should be on the Nature Reserve unless they are staff or volunteers! https://www.northwalespioneer.co.uk/news/18397033.action-taken-deter-people-flouting-lockdown-rules-conwy-nature-reserve/

PEOPLE have been spotted breaking lock down rules at a Conwy Nature Reserve.
Despite RSPB North Wales closing down all of their reserves, car parks, toilets and visitor centres on March 24 to follow Government guidelines, a number of people continue to visit the Conwy RSPB near the roundabout in Llandudno Junction.
Linda Jones, of Glan Conwy, raised the alarm after seeing "several people in large groups" pay a visit to the reserve.
She added: "I have walked through the layby on Conwy Road, Glan Conwy, on the way home from my exercise walk three times this past week at different times and each time I've seen at least one person there.
"I have also observed three males, one with dogs, walking from the direction of the information centre.
"As a life member of the RSPB I am concerned the lockdown conditions in force at the reserve and access are being abused, which could be detrimental to the birds, the ponies and the reserve itself".
Since Linda voiced her concerns and sent photographic evidence of people visiting the site to RSPB North Wales, action has been taken.
An RSPB spokesperson confirmed that they have been in touch with North Wales Police, who have been "very helpful" and have since been to the Reserve to put larger signs up on the gates in the hope of deterring people from entering the site.
Conwy Nature Reserve site manager Helen Jowett said: "In accordance with Government restrictions, the RSPB has closed all its reserves to visitors until further notice including RSPB Conwy.
"We have asked and continue to ask that members of the public respect this decision, stick to public rights of away whilst on their daily exercise and observe the reserve signage about no access during this time.
"Dog walkers and cyclists especially should not be accessing the reserve now or at any time please, particularly with ground nesting birds breeding at this time of year. We look forward to welcoming people back once it is safe for us to open RSPB Conwy again."
Linda said: "I am very pleased with the outcome and that action has been taken to safeguard Conwy Nature Reserve.
"But, my question is this; Why didn't the RSPB act sooner after the reserve was closed, why wait for a member to raise the matter?".
