Bryn Euryn plants

A very big thank you to Bryn Euryn Nursery for donating plants to be planted in the park.  We have just collected them and it took four trips in an estate car to carry them all.

Bryn Euryn is a social services initiative run by Conwy County Borough Council.  It provides opportunities for adults with learning disabilities, who are engaged in all aspects of gardening work.  The nursery is open to the public, who can buy a range of plants and other materials for the garden.  It is on Dinerth Road, Colwyn Bay.

The Friends of Queens park gardening squad will be planting these over the coming weeks during their regular gardening sessions.  Anyone is welcome to join them at 10am on alternate Mondays.  The next session is 25th February.

Friends of the park are holding an open meeting on Thursday 21 February at the County Hotel from 6:30pm.  Everyone welcome.

It was great to see our first daffodil of 2013 emerge in the park this week.  This is one of over 3,000 planted by the Friends of the Park gardening team back in the autumn.   The bulbs were provided by Conwy County Borough Council as part of Llandudno’s bid to become the Daffodil Capital of Wales.  They are of the Tete a Tete (small) type.

The Daffodil Capital of Wales team are planning a busy weekend of events to mark St David’s Day.  They include:

  • Friday 1st March – Parade starting from the band stand at 10:30 am.  Will include Primary Schools’ art competition.
  • Saturday 2nd March – Daffodil cake competition.  Judging at Caffi Cais from 2pm.  Followed by a professional cake bake off at the Imperial Hotel from 3:30pm
  • Sunday 3rd March – Daffy Dash fun run sets off at 12 noon from Craig y Don paddling pool followed by fun and entertainment at the Bandstand.
