Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them

Christmas Day with The Biggest Twitch

We thought we'd had our fair share of snow in Llandudno as our road still remains incredibly slippery and icy. But as we drove up the Conwy valley to our Christmas lunch destination, we found ourselves in a real winter wonderland.

Conwy Valley in the snow

However, with a bit of careful driving, we found ourselves at one of our favourite places to enjoy really good food, The Princes Arms in Trefriw.

Conwy Valley

Outside, the snow was still pretty thick on the outdoors tables and chairs and temperatures were at -4 even in the sunshine. It was amazing to see the River Conwy frozen over - technically, it's still tidal up to this point and we'd never seen the river covered in ice and snow like this before.

But within seconds of going inside, we were given a very warm welcome by landlord Lindsay and were toasting ourselves by the fire with a glass in our hand.

Several hours and many platefuls of delicious food later we staggered back outside and slithered our way to Ruth's sister Sue who lives down the valley. In this sheltered spot, there hadn't been a breath of wind to blow the snow off the branches, and the scenes looked just like a Christmas card!

It may look nice but the appeal is wearing rather thin for poor Sue and Rob who have not only had to dodge the icicles hanging from the gutters but have had frozen water pipes since the big freeze arrived.

Wildlife is really struggling in this weather though, and we've done our bit to help where we can. We have a large sack of birdfood in the boot of the car, and have been liberally scattering piles of seeds wherever we've come across birds looking for food in cleared patches. Hopefully we've been able to save a few lives around the area.
