  12. Survey for veterans - How do you want to communicate with veterans services? We have been contacted by Leeds Research Studio who are conducting a survey on behalf of Veterans Services about how veterans want to be communicated to about services relevant to them. The survey will help them to better understand how veterans want to communicate with services. The results will be used as part of a large project that is being undertaken throughout the UK. They need 400 surveys to be completed and for every completed survey they will donate £3.00 to either The Royal British Legion/SSAFA/Combat Stress/Help4Heroes (choice is yours at the end of the survey). You can take the survey here: https://tinyurl.com/veteranresearch There is an option on the questionnaire to leave details if you want to be contacted to take part in further research. The company- Leeds Research Studio is GDPR compliant and you only have to leave your details if you wish to take part in future research for this subject. The survey still counts, even if you do not want to leave any contact details. If you have any questions, please contact Sheryle Moran, Leeds Research Studio t: 0113 2179146

Gobeithio eich bod yn edrych ymlaen at Ddiwrnod y Lluoedd Arfog, ond rydym am roi rhybudd i chi! Bydd y digwyddiad yn brysur – peidiwch â thanamcangyfrif y nifer o bobl a cheir ar y diwrnod. Rydym yn disgwyl i oddeutu 100,000 o bobl deithio i’r digwyddiad. Ond peidiwch â phoeni! Rydym yn cynnig gwasanaeth parcio a theithio a gwasanaeth parcio a cherdded. Bydd mwy o drafnidiaeth gyhoeddus hefyd, diolch i’n partner teithio Arriva.  The day is nearly upon us! We hope you’re excited for Armed Forces Day, but we wanted to give you a heads up! The event will be busy - don’t underestimate the number of people and cars on the day. We expect around 100,000 people to travel to the event. But don’t worry! We’re offering both park and ride and park and walk services. Public transport will also be increased, thanks to our travel partner Arriva.     Trafnidiaeth Gyhoeddus Public Transport Mae bysus Arriva wedi bod yn rhan o grŵp rheoli traffig ac yn ogystal â bod yn bartner teithio parcio a theithio swyddogol i ni, maent wedi bod yn cynllunio ar gyfer mwy o deithwyr ar eu gwasanaeth arferol yn ardaloedd Llandudno a Chyffordd Llandudno. Arriva buses have been part of a traffic management group and as well as being our official park and ride travel partner they have been planning for a higher volume of commuters on their usual service in the Llandudno and Llandudno Junction area.     Mae Trenau Arriva Cymru hefyd yn rhan o’r peth ac maent wedi trefnu cerbydau ychwanegol er mwyn bod yn hwb i wasanaethau i mewn ac allan o Landudno a Chyffordd Llandudno.  Arriva Trains Wales are also in on the action and have arranged for additional carriages to boost services in and out of Llandudno and Llandudno Junction.      Parcio a Theithio / Cerdded Park and Ride / Walk Bydd ein Partner Teithio, Bysus Arriva yn darparu'r gwasanaeth bws parcio a theithio o safleoedd bws parhaol a dros dro. Our Travel Partner, Arriva Buses will provide the park and ride bus service from existing bus stops and temporary sites.     Bydd y bysus gwennol yn rhedeg rhwng 7am a 9.30pm ar system gylch i mewn ac allan o Landudno. Mae parcio am ddim, ond bydd bysus yn codi £1 y person bob ffordd (plant o dan 5 am ddim). Bydd stiwardiaid ym mhob maes parcio, ond byddwch yn parcio ar eich risg eich hun. The shuttle buses will run from 7am until 9.30pm on a loop system in and out of Llandudno. Parking is free, but buses will charge £1 per person each way (under 5s free). All car parks will be stewarded, but parking is at your own risk.     Anogir ymwelwyr i ddilyn arwyddion i'w maes parcio agosaf gan y bydd yr arwyddion traffig yn cael eu diweddaru fel mae meysydd parcio yn llenwi. Bydd meysydd parcio hygyrch hefyd wedi eu harwyddo’n eglur. Bysus parcio a theithio fydd y ffordd gyflymaf i’r dref os ydych yn teithio mewn car ar y diwrnod. Visitors are encouraged to follow directional signage to their nearest car park as the traffic signage will be updated as car parks fill. Accessible car parks will be clearly signed.

  26. Dear All, I would like to take this moment to thank all who came this year to the Falklands Liberation Day Wreath Laying Ceremony here in Chorley Lancashire. Despite the weather looking as though it was going to blow the proceedings away, in the end the sun shone on the righteous. Ours is a small ceremony with a loyal following, for which I am extremely grateful too, for their help and support in keeping this ceremony going. I can only hope that more Veterans, Comrades and Friends choose to support this opportunity to commemorate those who fell and not just during the war, but those who continue to suffer still. This Ceremony will continue to be held on the 14th June each year at 11.00. I look forward to seeing you in the future. Iddy
