Friday 10th midday – Monday 13th midday
In March a group of friends got together to create their way through Covid-19 lockdown calling the group Creating in the Teeth of Corona . The group grew rapidly as we all supported encouraged and stimulated one another. As many of us are also professional artists and crafts people we decided to have a virtual market, The Virtual Market for Creating in the Teeth of Corona , somewhat of a mouthful , but full of wonderful arts and crafts .
The Market runs from Midday of Friday 10th to Monday 13th Midday. At the moment you can browse through and see what is on offer and on Friday we will post links to websites , facebooks pages , etsyshops and contact phone number so visitors can buy online or contact the vendors to buy .
After that it will be available for a week before being archived .
Please do join us.

Kieran Powell’s Keep Laughing Show
We look in detail about an event or issue in the Conwy area
Local lad, 8 year old Brogan loves all animals & wants to become a zoo keeper when he’s bigger! He got very upset hearing of the zoos struggle due to covid-19 and decided he had to help as much as he couldf – so he came up with the idea of asking friends and family to sponsor him to do a cycle ride. On the 30th of May Brogan had special permission to cylce from Afon Conwy to the zoo and back – which he did in blistering heat in 3 hours!
Brogan setting off on his ride.
When the zoo closed their gates on March 22nd due to covid-19 it was the worst crisis the zoo has faced in its 57 year history, it has 140 species to care for & running costs at £30,000 per week. As the Welsh Government has decided not to provide the emergency fund scheme that has been offered to zoos & aquariums in England, the zoo is in desperate needs of funds to keep going.
Please help Brogan raise funds for this lovely little zoo by going to his Just Giving page set up by his mum Hayley Mcdonagh – https://bit.ly/3770I6L
Brogan is really close to his target now – with £375 raised – so help him reach hus target of £500 and help ave our wonderful local zoo!
