Heavy snow arrived in Rhos On Sea late this afternoon. Buses ground to a halt, hence a lot of people waiting in the bus shelter on the left-hand side of the road. Hope they got home ok!

Start of the Santa Fun Run at Llandudno this morning, in aid of Ty Gobaith Childrens Hospice. 400 Santas & Snowmen (& Snow-women!) ran the one mile from the Cenotaph to Bodafon Fields. The weather was great and everyone enjoyed themselves!

A shot of the Subway in Conwy, taken using the wide angle lens and laying the camera down on the floor. Nice effect, I think.
A return to Conwy to try my hand at some night photography again. Looking across the Quay towards the Castle from the Town Walls.

It's something I've mentioned myself in the past, almost one year ago, in fact. Unfortunately, nothing whatsoever has been done to tackle the problem, in spite of representations on the matter by several local people to Cllr Mike Priestley (Cabinet Member for the Environment at Conwy Council).
After several reminders, he has finally responded to Oscar's questions on the subject.
It would appear that the Council did own a Cleaning Machine but it was damaged by a flood at Dolgarrog and had to be written off.
One wonders if an insurance claim was submitted and what happened to the proceeds?
It would also appear that someone at CCBC has told Cllr Priestley that to buy a new machine to remove chewing gum would cost £120,000. No, that's not a typing error, I did say £120,000. Now, I'm not an expert on chewing gum removal, but, by using Google, I was able to find a machine specially designed for removing Chewing gum from Pavements that cost less than £5,000. Here's the link (with the price) so you can see for yourself:
So...what's going on? Is someone at Conwy Council trying to pull the wool over Cllr Priestley's eyes in order to save themselves some work?
Whatever the reason, it's disappointing to see that, one year later, nothing has been done...
