The people of Llanfairfechan care a lot about their environment, they enjoy the mountains, the rivers, the sea and all the local walks that link them up. Carelessness can cause upset in any of these areas and recently thoughtlessness has led to gorse fires on Garreg Fawr, one of the hills behind. It is sad to think that birds at the start of their nesting season will have lost nests or even worse off-spring to ill-thought through actions. Not only does wildlife suffer but the fire service are called out to put themselves at risk and local residents ending up footing the bill through their council tax. So please take care when you’re enjoying the world around you.
