It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022. A national period of mourning will now take place until the state funeral, which it is expected will take place on Monday 19th September. All formal council meetings and events will be suspended during this period of mourning.
The Mayor of the Bay of Colwyn, Cllr Colin Matthews, has issued the following statement:
“The death of Her Royal Majesty has come as a shock to all in Colwyn Bay and the County of Conwy. The Queen was an example to us all in leadership and drive and will be remembered for her dedication to her role and our Nation for a long time to come. On behalf of the Bay of Colwyn Bay Town Council and the areas which we cover, we send our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.”
