Surfside Arcade in Pensarn

I visited a lovely little family run arcade in Pensarn yesterday, where the owner is keeping the tradition of amusements alive. The arcades we remember as kids, and loved.

What was lovely was it was accessible for wheelchairs and they were very welcoming.

It’s obviously a labour of love, as it’s open from 10:00 – 22:00, with the owner going in in the evening after working at a separate business.

Well done to Jeanette Marshall, for keeping this little bit of seaside heritage alive.


My New Car

Have a look at this little baby!

This is my fresh off the line automatic Ford Connect. The interior of this beast looks like the command deck of The Enterprise! Captain Kirk would feel quite at home, there are so many state of the art features in it.  My phone connects by Bluetooth, so I can have an argument when I’m mobile. Hahahaha.

I love it, its so smooth due to the automatic gearbox, no jarring on my spine.


Local Coach Company Keeps Rural Route Alive.

Llew Jones Coaches of LLanrwst have taken over the Number 19 and X19 bus routes from Arriva. A move which will maintain an important connection for many people living in rural areas of the Conwy valley.


I travelled on the 19 today and you really get a sense of how difficult it would be for many disabled and elderly people to get to places, like Llandudno and local hospitals, without a reliable bus service.


Apart from that, it is a wonderful route and highly enjoyable journey through some of the more beautiful parts of the North Wales. Traveling down the picturesque Conwy valley, through stunning Betwys-y-Coed and up to Cwm Penmachno.


Well done LLew Jones on keeping such an important link running.

A Good Accessible Taxi Service in Penrhyn Bay.

Another good taxi service I have found to be reliable is Ray’s of Penrhyn bay.

A comfortable accessible taxi and friendly drivers, like Dave, make all the difference.

As well as cars, they have minibuses and accessible vehicles available.

I highly recommend them.
