Phil and Elfyn seek solution to Llanrwst football pitch problems

Elfyn Llwyd MP is to take up the problem of Llanrwst United’s waterlogged football pitch with senior officers of Conwy County Borough Council following a meeting arranged by Phil Edwards.

Mr Llwyd was recently invited to see for himself the damage to the pitch which has allegedly got worse since the construction of new drainage systems under the road next to the new Hafan Gwydir development.

Such is the state of the pitch that Llanrwst United’s junior team is now forced to play in Betws-y-Coed.

Cllr Phil Edwards, Plaid’s Deputy Leader on Conwy County Borough Council, arranged for Elfyn Llwyd to meet local councillors Siân Lloyd-Jones and Ian Jenkins at the site along with John Berwyn Pritchard, Chairman of Llanrwst United’s Junior Section.

Elfyn Llwyd MP said:

“We cannot go on with a ruined football pitch and teams with nowhere to play. John Berwyn has every right to complain about this sad state of affairs and I will be writing to senior officers in Conwy to ask for their urgent assistance in sorting this problem out.

“I’ve had a similar case in Blaenau Ffestiniog where the football pitch had become waterlogged and unusable. That’s now been fixed and I hope the experience of putting that right will help in efforts to resolve this problem in Llanrwst.”

Phil Edwards added:

“I’m pleased that our local MP is now to take up the case. I hope that Elfyn’s involvement and his experience with similar issues in Blaenau will help bring about an early solution to this problem.”
