Wow! I cannot believe it was December when I last posted, time surely waits for nobody.
I will not go into a drawn out reasoning for my absence save to say that I’ve had a couple of related illnesses, one quite serious, that have left me incapacitated for some months and also an injury that trapped the sciatic nerve.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the well-wishers and also the Councillors who contacted me offering their support, it was refreshing to learn that I had more friends in Council than I thought, a big “thank you” to all of you.
A question that was sent to me during my absence……
“Hi can anybody tell me who owns the old indoor market in colwyn bay? i wish someone would do it up and rent the units out to small businesses who can't afford the silly prices being charged in the bayview shopping centre.
Baz, I can tell you that CCBC bought it on a CPO and although they will deny it I still think it is their intention to turn it into Council offices or some other Civic Building, this will go along with the rest of their plans of turning Colwyn Bay into a Civic Centre during the day and a Ghost-town by night.
My disappointment of CCBC continues with their purchase of the pier, another millstone around the council-tax payer’s neck. When will they realise that it is our money they are playing with and not theirs, if the council was run as a business and not as someone’s private little empire then the piers purchase would never have arisen and we would have been saved from years of upkeep costs on a white elephant. I am all for saving the pier, if it’s economically viable but not at the cost of more important issues.
On a final note; a quick thank you also goes out to Oscar, it was his comment on… thoughtsofoscar.blogspot.com that prompted me to step back into the blog, thanks….. mate!
