Crazy that you have to come here to get a link to the Colwyn Bay forum, there doesn't appear to be any link from the Llandudno Local, full of good intentions but that Craig really hasn't got a clue.

Alun,
pleased to be of service.

Why isn't the launch party being held in Colwyn Bay?

Councillor John Oddy said...

Anon,
I’m afraid I can’t answer that. I can only presume that most people going to it are from Llandudno. It may well be that Craig couldn’t find or didn’t know of a suitable venue over here.

I'm getting a few disgruntled messages from members i've kicked out John, they need to learn to obey the rules like 99% of my forum members do. Re: Alun saying i've not got a clue, I run the most successful forum in the area for over 2 years, I had more than 50 people attend my launch night to show their support, so I must be doing something right. I run a tight ship, leave it or like it. The launch night was held in Llandudno for some of the reasons John said, but it was also a celebration of my venture and a Thankyou to my many members/readers and supporters, the Colwyn Bay local so happened to coincide with it's cent launch. The Colwyn Bay local is John's and SnakeCorps baby, if they choose to organise social functions as does the Llandudno Local, that is up to them. May I wish them both every success in establishing a new online community for the betterment of the town.

Llandudno like Blackpool are tired, Victorian, worn out seasonal seaside towns. Our major cities are over populated with refugees and immigrants. Blackpool has taken the financial initiative and has its hotels booked as bedsitters etc for the full 12 months of the year for newcomers, so in practice is no longer seasonal, other than day trippers who have easy access from the motorways. It is about time Llandudno took the same initiative and made good use of the empty hotels and bed and breakfasts accomodations. This will help the rate payers and retail business, there are also numerous government grants available. Revitalisation should be the key word. Why has this never been proposed to Council?
