Temporary path closure – February 2024
The lower path on Menai Woods will be closed to all pedestrian traffic from 19 to the 23 February, inclusive.
The aforementioned closure is to allow for the removal of trees and vegetation which have been assessed as being potentially dangerous by our advisors.
As you pass the Citizens Advice building in Bangor, it's hard not to notice the beautiful mural celebrating 1876, and Nathan Broadhead!
The Mayor would like to thank Andy Birch, graffiti artist Dimeone for leading on the project, and North Wales Police, Crimebeat (Senior Sheriff Janet Phillips' charity), Bangor City Council and Gwynedd Youth Service for the sponsorship and arm work to complete the project.
Special thanks to the young people who painted all day.
It was an honour to spend the day with Aaron and Howell, our amazing Bangor City outdoor operatives recently. Most of their work is unseen, often thankless – but they carry out those essential jobs that keep the city going, so I asked if I could spend the day with them. Their work is fundmental to our city.
I met them by the pier at 7 o’ clock in the morning, and then staright over to the City offices in the city Centre. We cast a glance around Tan y Fynwent, noted the rat problem and took some photographs so we could report the pests to the Public Protection depratment at Cyngor Gwynedd. It’s Cyngor Gwynedd’s responsibility to deal with pest control but it’s a responsibility for all of us to report pests.
After cleaning the offices, we returned to the Pier to empty the bins and inspect the condition of the decking, and general maintenance. Some of the decking beams were rotten so had to be replaced immediately. Saftey checks were carried out, and we moved on. We all need to be reminded that 5mph is the speed limit on the Pier, or the decking gets damaged.
Then we went over to Menai Woods to inspect the trees for any storm damage. Works are needed on the woodland path but as Aaron and Howell are our only City Council maintenance operatives, it’s impossible to get to grips with the significant works needed, without additional funds from all the stakeholders. We also visited Ashleigh Fields.
Then off to sort out the Christmas lights! This is a big job!
Then before the end of the day, there was a call from the Pier renovation team, needing wooden beams and other resources before tomorrow otherwise the works would have to stop! Aaron had to turn on his heel and go shopping immediately! Aaron has alos taken on additional tasks as the City Council is now responsible for raising and lowering the bollards on the high street. Thank you Aaron and Howell – you are priceless! We are very lucky to have you!
