Last Sunday I posted these two photos which were taken last month in Rhyl by Yours Truly. Each has a place name blanked out. The question: What are the missing names?

The answer: The upper one Clement Drive, the other Brookes Avenue.

Getting both right for 1 win: Richard & Ceri Swinney, Sue Handley, The Great Gareth, Jane Shuttle.



In terms of public services in Wales, the Welsh Government is now more important than Westminster. Readers may have noticed next year's Welsh Government election campaign seems to have begun already via social media and letters to newspapers.

History shows that when Rhyl was a success and made its own money it was a Conservative-run town. When visitor numbers began to fall and the resort became less profitable, the Tories lost interest and drifted away, handing Rhyl to Labour on a plate.

Labour has been fixated on spending public money instead of attracting private investment. Rhyl Labour Party’s decades of dominance have been a disaster. The town has all but lost its standing as a resort and as a regional shopping centre.

Although not a wholehearted Conservative supporter I believe non-Labour representation at Welsh Government would be better for Sunny Rhyl and for the rest of Vale of Clwyd. No doubt I will have more to say about this matter when the time comes.
