Welcome to Colwyn Bay! Enjoy your stay! Witness the wonderful town that once was.
The dream for the people of Colwyn Bay was the Restoration of the Pier. This was a beacon of hope for the town, but now with it's destruction looming, its demolition goes against the public's wishes. This town has nothing left to give, or fight for. It's just another example of another loss to a once Loved town who's glory years have long since faded.

Colwyn Bay - man with 162 offences jailed after he took parked car with keys left in ignition
Colwyn Bay man jailed after he took parked car with keys left in ignition
A 29-year-old man with 162 offences on his record took an unlocked Audi car left overnight outside a garage with the keys in the ignition, a court heard on Thursday.
Police found jobless Craig Judge asleep in the garage customer’s undamaged car at Colwyn Bay.
He was jailed for 24 weeks after admitting taking the Audi without consent and stealing cans of lager from a Penrhyn Bay newsagent’s and a Llandudno shop. Magistrates at Llandudno said he was a persistent offender.
Prosecutor James Neary said Judge’s record included 126 theft offences and he had an anti-social behaviour order banning him from certain shops. He had been freed recently from jail.
Defence solicitor Roger Thomas said Judge, of Maes Glas, Rhos on Sea, was becoming “institutionalised.” He’d been wandering the streets when he came across the unlocked car and drove to a friend’s house. The defendant struggled with alcohol and drug problems.
