Mind is a national mental health charity concerned with the needs and rights of mentally distressed people and their families.

They work to create a better life for everyone with experience of mental distress by:

  • advancing the views, needs and ambitions of people with mental health problems
  • challenging discrimination and promoting inclusion
  • influencing policy through campaigning and education
  • inspiring the development of quality services which reflect expressed need and diversity
  • achieving equal rights through campaigning and education

Mental health problems can affect anyone, rich or poor, young or old, shattering the lives of those affected and the lives of the people close to them. One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives. Each year more than 250,000 people are admitted to psychiatric hospitals and over 4,000 people take their own lives.

 

Aberconwy Mind helps local people rebuild their lives by providing friendly support and a chance to share experiences and start your recovery. They offer a warm welcome, a chance to make new friends and an opportunity to develop new skills and interests.

Long Term Closure of Colwyn Bay Promenade Causes Consternation Among Locals.

The next stage of developments to take place on Colwyn bay promenade could take upto a year which has upset a number of local residents who say it may deter tourists from coming to the Bay.

The Prom has been closed from the Pier to Marine Road Old Colwyn, with no date set for reopening. Diversions are in place but these will only increase traffic on other local routes. It would be advisable to use the A55 when ever possible.

It has also been noted that there were no signs in place to advise tourists of how to reach the accessible parts of the prom, at Old Colwyn and Rhos-on-Sea.

I have been trying , without success, to contact someone involved to get more information about the potential length of the disruption.

Cllr Dave Cowans said to the Daily Post, “We realise closing this section of promenade will cause disruption, but every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum.” I don’t think his “minimum” will actually be that minimal.

Another local resident told me that, in his words “And this is before they start on the Pier!”

Bus stop moved closer to Ysbyty Gwynedd entrance

The main bus stop that services Ysbyty Gwynedd, has been moved closer to the main entrance. This enables patients and visitors to access the hospital without having to cross busy entrance roads.

The decision to move the stop has made it much easier for the elderly and disabled to access public transport.

Betsi Cadwaladr Unviversity Health Board (BCHUB) agreed to move the stop after a campaign by local people.
