On Tuesday, 30th June Conwy County Borough Council’s Cabinet met formally for the first time since the Coronavirus crisis to review its role in our national response to the Coronavirus crisis (you can watch the virtual meeting above). The Conservative-led council moved quickly to support residents and businesses locally, by:
- Offering Llandudno’s Venue Cymru as the first Welsh field hospital, Ysbyty Enfys,
- Hosting North Wales’ regional drive through Coronavirus testing centre at the Builder’s Street coach park in Llandudno,
- Providing a life line to vulnerable residents through the new Community Support Service, fielding over 6,000 calls since lockdown began,
- Working with Welsh Government to deliver £36,000,000 of grants to small businesses,
- Transforming Llandudno Junction’s Leisure Centre into a Coronavirus assessment centre,
- Providing additional showering facilities for NHS staff at Llandudno and Llanrwst’s swimming pools,
- Offering Ysgol John Bright’s Leisure Centre as a local base for NHS midwifery services, whilst the Eryl Wen building in Llandudno hosted local health visitors
- Transforming the council’s storage facilities at Mochdre into temporary body storage facility – thankfully it hasn’t had to be used.
A big thanks is due to Conwy County Borough Council and the leadership its administration has shown throughout this national emergency.
