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 - Colwyn Bay man arrested in Drugs Operation by Police
Police have arrested another six people as part of a major drugs crackdown.
North Wales Police’s Operation Scorpion had already seen 15 men remanded in custody on Tuesday last week on allegations of being involved in a plot to supply cocaine and cannabis.
The charges followed what police said was an ongoing investigation into the supply of drugs into North Wales.
This week further arrests were made in Caernarfon, Colwyn Bay and Manchester.
On Tuesday a woman in her 50s and man in his 30s from Caernarfon were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs. Following interview both were released on bail to allow officers time to complete their investigation.
The following day, a 33-year-old man from Colwyn Bay, Richard Broadley, was arrested and later charged with conspiracy to supply class A and B controlled drugs. He appeared before Llandudno magistrates on Thursday and was remanded in custody.
On the same day officers arrested three men from the Manchester area on suspicion of conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs. Two were charged with the same offence and appeared before Caernarfon magistrates yesterday, and the third was bailed to allow officers time to complete their investigation.
A number of properties in the Manchester and Caernarfon areas have also been searched and a number of items seized.
Detective Inspector Arwyn Jones said: “The further enforcement activity this week highlights our commitment under Operation Scorpion to ensure that all those involved in the supply of controlled drugs in North Wales are brought to justice. These further arrests now bring the total arrested to 24 with 19 of those already charged with serious offences. The investigation is continuing and further arrests will follow.”
He added: “I would like to take this further opportunity to again thank the public for their continued patience and support.”
