Visit to The Range Rhyl.


Yesterday, I paid a visit to the new Range Store on the Marina Quay retail Park in Rhyl.

I spoke to two members of staff, Paula, the supervisor, and Sian who showed me around the store.

The layout of the store is fantastic, even for larger wheelchairs, with plenty of space in the aisles to manoeuvre comfortably.  Stock was easily visible and accessible, with staff on hand for anything you needed. There was a large lift, with ample space, to the upper floor.

The choice at The Range was huge, with everything from furniture to art supplies!

The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, I can’t praise them enough.

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.

Congestion at Conway Road end of Champenys Retail Park.


Works are currently underway near traffic lights on the corner of Conway Road and Charlotte Road and are responsible for the closure of that particular exit from Champenys Retail Park.

Motorists are therefore left with one way out and forced to exit on to Mostyn Broadway, resulting in major delays.

Motorists reported delays of longer than an hour and a half to get out of the retail park.

A Conwy County Borough Council spokesperson said: “A traffic engineer made a site visit on Wednesday and advised the contractors on ways to improve traffic management in the area whilst the work is taking place.”

The spokesperson said once works are being completed to improve traffic flow out of Charlotte Road by providing clearer visibility at the junction, replacing the traffic light with a give way and installing a zebra crossing at a better location to improve pedestrian movement.

Volunteering for St Davids

Today, the 19th August, I was volunteering for St. David’s Hospice.

We were collecting for the Hospice outside M&S in Llandudno. We even had volunteers riding a stationary bike for charity.


Here you can see me with my charity bucket and the guys behind me riding the bike.

We raised a good amount, thanks to the generous people who took the time to come over and put their cash in the buckets.

St David’s are always on the lookout for volunteers, so if you are interested, give them a call.
