    Exclamation Colomendy

    The Colomendy Centre in North Wales enjoyed by generations of youngsters is set to receive a £10m makeover. (Although this is old news now, last week I was a bit concerned that there was such a tight deadline for councillors to approve the makeover, that it would not get done.)

    Councillors will be asked today (Friday) to approve plans to redevelop the centre, adding new outdoor activities.

    Who knows if they will or won't?

    One thing is for sure, I know that u went to Colomendy! Tell us all about it!

    Fears for the future of Colomendy

    THE Bishop of Liverpool is at the centre of a row which is threatening to derail the £10m transformation of the Colomendy outdoor centre.
    The north Wales site is treasured by thousands of Liverpool residents who have visited it.
    The ageing centre is desperately in need of refurbishment and Liverpool council has sealed a deal with a private company to upgrade it.
    But the bishop, the Right Reverend James Jones, believes the centre should instead by run by a charitable trust and has offered his help to set one up.

    Delays - I hope not, why does this always happen these days?

    I got the other pictures up and while I was at it, I decided to set up the website again:

    www.colomendy.net

    I used to own colomendy.com but some company re-registered it and won't let me have it back!

    Yes, all good.

    I've only ever seen pics of Colomendy, never actually been there.
    We've been for walks around the Loggerheads area .. isn't it over the way from there ?
    My son went on a school trip to a place called Kingswood. They used that place while Colomendy was undergoing some refurb. Have you heard of Kingswood ?

    Default Colomendy, Schools asked to bail it out

    SCHOOLS in Liverpool are being told to hand over thousands of pounds to fund Colomendy outdoor education centre.

    The North Wales centre, which has been loved by generations of Liverpool schoolchildren, is already losing around £1m annually and needs £500,000 a year to remain in operation.

    Now Liverpool council has given city schools two options - to pay thousands of pounds from their budgets towards its upkeep, or pay increased costs to use the centre.

    More

    Once again someone felt the need to attempt to close something, anything just close it and save money.

    Ermine tastes much the same as sackcloth when there's nothing left to eat.
