THANK YOU FOR STAYING AT HOME. Unnecessary travel is still not permitted and this includes long journeys to the beach. Restrictions to minimise the spread of covid19 have largely been effective in Barmouth. The police are politely but firmly encorcing these, as a small minority of people choose to ignore the warnings and potentially increase the risk of infection. Approaching the Spring Bank holiday fines have been increased to a maximum of £1920.
