Mayor’s Civic Service

The Mayor of Penmaenmawr Town Council, Cllr Steven Consterdine, hosted a Civic Service at St Gwynan’s Church in Dwygyfylchi on Sunday the 29th October.

The service was a chance for councillors and local residents to come together so that they could recognise the important role the council and local volunteer groups play in providing services for the people of Penmaenmawr.

The theme of the service was Community with the Mayor saying “It’s important that we come together to have the chance to celebrate the strength of our community solidarity and reaffirm our commitment to our community. Working together in our rich diversity- sharing our skills, interests and experience – at this time of economic, social and climate crisis is even more important than ever and the people of Penmaenmawr Ward play their part.”

After the service guests went to Noddfa to enjoy an afternoon tea and some good conversation.

Next years’ service will be held during the summer and will be advertised on the Town Council Website.

Paddling Pool Update

Work is continuing to refurbish the paddling pool at Penmaenmawr.

The contractors are on site to continue the work to resurface the paddling pool and surrounding apron before the new non-slip coating can be added.

The Contractors are looking to make use of the dry weather forecast for the beginning of next week to get the surfaces prepared so that the three layers of the non-slip surface can be applied next week.  The team leader has confirmed that, unless there are unforeseen problems with the weather, they are expecting to have the work completed before the end of October.

While many Penmaenmawr residents have been frustrated by the lack of progress that Conwy County Borough Council have made in the work to bring the paddling pools up to current standards, Penmaenmawr Town Council have been working to ensure that the County Council keep to their promise to have the work completed before 2024 summer season.

Deputy Mayor of Penmaenmawr Town Council, Cllr Sarah Williams said “While the Town Council are really pleased that the work is progressing to complete the work, we understand the impact that the lack of this important community amenity has had. Not only have local children been denied the use of the paddling pool, there has been a real impact on those visiting the town, wanting to make use of our beautiful beach. The reduction of visitor numbers has had an impact on money coming into the local economy and we hope that having the paddling pool open for all of next year helps get visitor numbers back up.”

New Councillor

Penmaenmawr Town Council have just announced the appointment of their newest Town Councillor, Lara Cook, who will be representing the Pant-yr-Afon Ward.

Cllr Cook is 18 years old and has lived in the Capelulo Ward her whole life and, speaking Welsh as her first language, is keen to promote the area and culture of Penmaenmawr.

Having recently finished her exams and having an interest in local politics, giving up her free time to join the local council appeared to be a good way of developing her understanding of the local communities and how to help improve the facilities and opportunities in her home town.

After being co-opted onto the council Lara said “I know I’m still young and have a lot to learn about local politics and how I can contribute to the wellbeing of my local communities. Having lived here all my life, I know the area and the concerns of local people.

I see my age as an advantage to the council, as I can bring a viewpoint and a voice from the younger members of the community who aren’t often heard. I understand the pressures on young people who have been brought up here, but now have to try to find their own place in society, as well as somewhere to live and work. I hope I can help make Penmaenmawr a place that offers opportunities to everyone, no matter what their background is.”

The Mayor, Cllr Steven Consterdine said “We’re really pleased to have another young person on the council to represent the people of Penmaenmawr. It’s important that we have councillors from a diverse range of backgrounds, as this helps the council better understand the needs of our communities and the priorities they want us to focus on.”

Interpretation Boards in Parc Plas Mawr

Three further information boards have been installed today in Parc Plas Mawr.

The boards were purchased as part of the project to upgrade the amenities in the park.  Due to problems the supplier had in fitting the boards, Penmaenmawr Town Council decided to install the boards themselves.

Penmaenmawr Community Pride Wardens, Dale and Minton, have worked hard in this hot weather to install the boards, which provide information on areas within the park for the community and visitors to our town.
