Sorry to have to inform you, that after considering the poor Weather forecast for Saturday, we have had to take the decision of cancelling this years Bonfire and Fireworks event.
We are obviously disappointed, however after considering the latest information and associated risks it’s the only safe action to take.
It’s the first time that we have had to cancel the event, let’s hope for better weather next year.
Thanks for all who were planning to help out, especially Paul from Gwynedd Forklifts, Peter from Chemsol, Mark Butterworth and Jim Rothnie who were planning to provide a special Fireworks display, with a special thought for Brian Butterworth Ex PSC president.
Please inform as many of your friends and family that the event is cancelled.
The Town Mayor, and highways agency have been informed.

Commodore’s Report: Father and son win the Puffin Marathon. Penmaenmawr Sailing Club held their annual Open “Puffin Marathon Race” on Sunday the 11th October 2015 which saw a fleet of craft of very different capabilities take part in the three hour challenge. The race began with light winds and fair weather but soon turned into faster winds and rougher waters through the sound between Anglesey and Puffin Island. The keenly challenged race saw the mono hull doing better than the catamarans. Club Commodore Gerry Frobisher thanked Mandy Williams for the catering and praised Club Junior, George Moss, who single handedly fought his way bravely through some strong wind and heavy water at the Puffin Sound and around the island itself, in his Laser.
