We've just moved out of our house on the orme in readiness for our zurich move, we lived in deganwy before and my mum lives in Craig y don! Seeing a six degrees of separation doesn't exist in Llandudno more like 3 degrees we're bound to know someone who knows someone!

Yes more than likely! PM me if you'd like to swap a bit of banter . Shame I won't be able to join you guys for the match this weekend, Zurich and Lausanne are a bit of a stretch.
