A HEART-SHAPED tribute to key workers has been created out of colourfully decorated stones in Llandudno.

The touching symbol, featuring messages of support for NHS workers among others, is dedicated to those who have kept the country going through the coronavirus lockdown and will feature at Queen's Park, Craig-y-Don, throughout August.

The Friends of Queens Park Community Group say the stones had started out as a snake head that had a message attached asking people of all ages to decorate their own stones and add them to the snake.

That idea came from Penrhyn Bay and was picked up by a Craig y Don resident and her two boys. The snake eventually grew to around 20metres in length and featured around 80 decorated stones.

However, it has now been turned into the heart-shaped symbol of support, agreed upon by both Conwy Borough County Council and the Friends of Queens Park Community Group.

Group chairman Jeff Wright says these projects have 'helped draw the community together' during lockdown.

He added: "It is hoped that will be a lasting legacy, and a special tribute to some very special people to whom we should all feel very grateful for what they have done , and indeed what they continue to do for all of us , we respect them greatly for that.

"We hope to invite everyone who had placed a stone to the unveiling of the Heart Tribute, and a date for this will be announced soon."
