Exciting news for day visitors and residents alike, is that following the completion of the new, and excellent, balustrade / sea wall, a new attraction to the hotel is the offer of champagne and strawberries, or cream teas, on the lawn (subject to wedding bookings). Added to the area is a set of furniture, complete with 1920s style linen umbrellas - a nice reminder of oft-seen photos dating from before the war with 1930s gentry enjoying tea on the hotel lawn.
BRISTOL COLONNADE RE-OPENS
Thanks to ingenious work by Portmeirion, the Bristol Colonnade is again open to visitors to the village after being closed by Gwynedd County Council in 2003.
CHANTRY ROW RE-PAINTED
Recent months have seen a number of Village buildings given a new coat of paint, and he latest of these is Chantry Row.
In line with other long-existing gates around the village, a new one has been erected, complete with interesting Egyptian ornaments, on the path towards Dolphin cottage, replacing the old posts and chain.
TRINITY STATUES RESTORED
Work also continues with the building of the Pizza and Pasta restaurant, replacing the garage block behind Triumphal Arch, and also the easying of access to the woodland paths.
