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.

Crime falling say North Wales Police
Crime is falling and there are fewer victims of it, say North Wales Police.
Responding to the Daily Post’s detailed analysis of street-level crimes, Superintendent Sacha Hatchett said the Force would “continue to deal firmly with anyone breaking the law”.
Supt Hatchett added: “Crime in North Wales has been falling for a number of years.
“The substantial reduction in reported crime in 2013 of 7.4% is encouraging and it is good to see this on top of reductions in 2012.
“In terms of people this means 2,919 fewer victims of crime.
“Anti-social behaviour figures show 1,325 fewer victims in the last year and the number of 999 calls received was 80,411, down 2.6% on the previous year which meant fewer people needed our services.”
In areas such as Wrexham’s Brook Street she vowed that steps were being taken to reduce alcohol related crime.
She said: “Some areas in North Wales have a vibrant night-time economy and we do have preventative operations in place to identify individuals who are intoxicated and cause a public nuisance.
“We use the legislation available to ensure they leave places such as Wrexham town centre to prevent them becoming more intoxicated and displaying disorderly behaviour. We want people to enjoy our towns and to feel safe.
“We work closely with local authorities, community safety partnerships and night time economy businesses, including pubs and clubs, to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and we deal firmly with anyone breaking the law.”
“North Wales Police is continuing to perform strongly and deliver a safer North Wales.”
