DO NOT TRAVEL

The government has given strict guidelines, stay at home, support the NHS and save lives. Please do not travel unless it is an essential journey. A day trip out on the North Wales Coast Lines to the Coast is NOT a necessity and is putting people in danger. There is nothing open for you so please stay away. If we all obey the rules set down the restrictions will be over much sooner.
