CricketThe club was founded in 1923 and started playing at its Penrhyn Avenue ground in Rhos-on-Sea in 1924. This year we celebrate our 90th birthday! The 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams play in their respective ECB Premier and First Divisions of the Liverpool & District Cricket Competition. Colwyn Bay Cricket Club was assessed as the best ground in the Competition for the 7th successive year in 2012. Our most junior sides play local teams in under 9 and under 10 age groups and our under 11, under 13 and under 15 teams play in the Eryri Leagues. The club annually hosts County Cricket and in 2012 welcomed both Glamorgan CCC and Yorkshire CCC to play in the LV= County Championship in early June. This match was abandoned due to the adverse weather after only one morning’s play. Despite which, after a massive effort by both Glamorgan groundstaff and some members of our own committee, the Clydesdale Bank 40 match was played as scheduled on Sunday 10th June. Durham Dynamos returned to the ground for the first time since 1993 and played the Glamorgan now Welsh Dragons. The match resulted in the first win for the Welsh Dragons.

Fitness/Food/Focus/Family/Fun.  Exercise and Body Conditioning Holistically.

“When you last walked into the gym you may have felt you didn’t belong there, Or perhaps you didn’t KEEP going because you didn’t really connect with anyone. Perhaps nobody even bothered to get to know you….and it made getting fit a somewhat lonely journey. Our community is awesome at helping people get started in Fitness, because they ALL remember what it was like.
We will say hello when we’ve never seen you before, or partner up with you in a workout so you can really get to know the people you see each day in the gym. We also have social events  such as barbecues, nights out, adventures and our annual Fast Way To Fitness Annual Ball, where we celebrate a year of transforming Bodies and lives together.

Old Colwyn is regarded as the hidden gem of the North Wales Coast – our 9 hole meadowland course is situated within a mile of the A55 Chester – Holyhead coastal road.  Old Colwyn has excellent views of the Welsh hills, Bay of Colwyn  and the Irish Sea.  We would invite all players to sit and enjoy our panoramic views at the end of their round. Old Colwyn is a par 68 – 5263 yard course designed by the legendary golfer and five times Open Champion, James Braid, and was opened during September 1907.  The course consists of one par 5, five par 4‘s and three par 3‘s.   The par 3 seventh is regarded as our signature hole where you need to clear three very large Oak trees which stand guard in front of the green. The strength of Old Colwyn is not only the course, but the Club itself. You will be sure to receive a warm welcome if you chose to join us in the clubhouse after your round, for a drink, and to share your stories.

Rhos on Sea Gold Club was founded in 1899 by a well-known local architect Mr WH Goldsmith.  He was invited to develop a seaside golf course over 120 acres of Rhyd Farm, owned by Mr William Horton, JP.  The original farmhouse was used as the clubhouse until it was demolished in 1905 to make way for the existing building you see today.  The area that the course occupies is reputed to be the original bed of the River Conwy.  There remains a stream known as Afon Ganol that runs roughly south to north and through the centre of the course.

TCIt was more than 126 years ago that the venue now known as Theatr Colwyn first opened its doors to the public. Back in the 1880s, it was then called a Public Hall – as the stone plaque at the top of the building still testifies – but it’s uses were many, just as they are today – a place of entertainment, for discussions, dances and fundraising events. We are pleased to announce that recent investigations in public archives revealed the venue is now the UK’s oldest operating cinema.
