Marl Ward Work

Quite a lot of work going on around my Ward at the moment and this is connected to The Llandudno Junction Regeneration Project. The photo of the new bin, which are being replaced throughout Junction is down by the New Asda, this area was overgrown and attracted litter, now re-turfed and looking a lot better.

Llandudno Junction is also having some new road signs, some of our pavement area's are being renewed, new street lights down by the Weekly News Roundabout and we have replaced the old galvanised railings in that area with new green powder coated ones.

Opposite Asda the retail unit shop fronts have been renewed and I am awaiting a new community notice board which will be placed by the little park just opposite the train station.

There are more works to come, but it is fair to say what has been achieved has taken time and has been supported by my Pensarn Council Colleague Meirion Hughes from day one and fully supported by my Ward Colleague Sue Shotter. It has been a great team effort to get to this stage, I also wish to thank the Council Officers for all their hard work during this ongoing project especially Tim Pritchard.

Today I also contacted probation services to help me with a few areas that are in need of a clear up.

Next week also See's a meeting with residents and a developer on my ward to address some concerns, Llandudno Junction Community Club, 23rd November at 6pm. Any issues regarding Albini House building site will be discussed and of course anyone who has an issue is welcome to attend.

A Day of Two Halves

This morning I spent some time with Allotmenteers from our new site in Tan Y Bryn in Rhos-On-Sea, assisting with a clear out, allocating new plots, we also gave them some of our "Conwy's best" Compost (Compost made from our Parks and Gardens).

This afternoon I spent some time with Senior and Junior members of our community in Llandudno Junction, organised by Conwy Youth Services. Our young people organised an event for their elders, bingo with prizes donated from our local business's, tea, cake and sandwiches made by our young people, a raffle and a dance show from Llandudno Junction's Crystal Jets.

I was proud to be part of this event, witnessing our young people look after and respect their elders. It really is the minority that spoil it for the majority.

My Thanks go to Tommy, Ronnie and Donna from the Conwy Youth Service, Yvonne from Tesco, Pete our PCSO, all the various business people in Llandudno Junction who donated prizes, Llandudno Junction Crystal jets for entertaining, my council colleagues Meiron Hughes and Sue Shotter, Conwy Town Council Mayor Anne Roberts and lastly but by no means least, our young people in Llandudno Junction. They really did our senior residents proud.
