Photos of today please?
I missed the Welsh Guards at Bangor today because of prior engagements. But I hope it all went well and to plan. If any of you were present and took photos that we can use on the Bangor website then could you please send them on to me at editor@BangorEye.com - Thanks.
You will of course be credited for them on the site, who knows it may get you noticed by someone who is looking for a photographer???
Well, the Bangor in Bloom Festival is progressing well, with many of the stalls already taken. I understand that there are more available and if you check out the Bangor Eye website, there is an application form and details available to download. The Festival will be held later this year and the organisers are looking at the business sector to help with any support they can give (however large or small). The former Mayor Councilor Douglas Madge is very keen to make this a big success and hopefully an annual event, with your help he can make it happen.
Bangor's Business Forum will be meeting again next week and if you would like to have an input into this organisation then please contact me through the website and I will put you in touch with the right people. The group is very forward thinking and looking towards working with different sectors in the city to secure a healthy business environment for all.
On Monday I met with North Wales' Chief Mr Richard Brunstrom. He was present at the Deiniol centre introducing the Bangor and Caernarfon Business against Crime new safe child scheme. Local school children were present and given a talk on what to do if they were separated from their parents. He met with Mr Ayrton Westwood the Deiniol centre manager and explained that this scheme was the first of its kind in North Wales. Mr Brunstrom also explained of the importance of websites like Caernarfon Online and Bangor Eye. He said he looked at the sites regularly and enjoyed them immensely.
Well that's all from me for now, I'll catch you all soon.
