Thankyou For Helping To Keep The Community Safe This Easter

Under normal conditions, Abersoch would awaiting the huge number of visitors arriving for the first really big weekend of the season and those visitors would be excitedly counting down the days and hours until their arrival. Sadly, this year, that is not going to be possible, however, those feelings of anticipation and excitement will return, hopefully in the not too distant future.

With Abersoch currently very quiet under its period of confinement, it is obvious that the overwhelming majority of people have heeded the advice of health professionals, the governments of Wales and the UK, local authorities and the police, by postponing their visit to the area, thus helping to keep the community safe by reducing the chances of transmission of this horrible virus and any potential strain on local health services.

One simple way of helping to understand the importance of the measures in keeping everyone's communites safe, is to add up in your mind those people that you know who could really do without catching the virus. We did this very early in the crisis, hence the very forthright messages which have been posted on this site.

By staying away, you are helping to protect the elderly and the vulnerable, the little local girl who has a lung disorder, the local lady who has had a lung transplant, the local father who is undergoing treatment for cancer, the local father who has recently had heart surgery, the local mother fighting cancer, the local man who has recently had a stroke, grandfathers, grandmothers, nains and taids... the list could go on and on and on.


So, thankyou to all those who are staying away and are helping to keep these people safe.

More businesses in the village are remaining open longer throughout the year - including the cafes and restaurants and more of the shops. You will find that the shops often have winter sales on with bargains you would not normally find during the "season". So if you fancy getting away from all the hustle and bustle of life - maybe a weekend or day trip to Abersoch "out of season," might be the answer.

If you are lucky with the weather there are plenty of sheltered sun traps - and it is not unusual to see sunbathers on Abersoch Main Beach in mid-winter!
