Set in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains, just outside Aberystwyth, is a Halloween event that will deliver you a night of terror, thrills, and laughter. Join us from this October, as we unleash Terror Mountain, an offering of 4 LIVE ACTION HORROR ATTRACTIONS, scary entertainment and much more.
We’ve got a real treat for ‘victims’ in 2018, as we have created 3 brand new nightmares for you to face! We bring your deepest and darkest fears to life, in terrifyingly convincing, highly themed experiences. Set in a genuine Victorian mine, we hold the key to your night of thrills, fun and screams! We can’t be called Terror Mountain without backing up the claim. So, what can you expect from our attractions? Well, let us break it down for you;
RELIC: NEW FOR 2018
Congratulations! You have been invited to attend the unveiling ceremony of our brand-new exhibition at the Ponterwyd Museum of Curiosities. Come and marvel at our acquisitions, enjoy a variety of our other oddities and gawp at our exciting collection. The centrepiece for this brand-new showcase is an ancient Relic, which dates back 100’s of years. However, don’t touch the artefacts, the curator is very protective…
SUMMONING: NEW FOR 2018
“It would be fun” they said. I’d been on a Paranormal Investigation at The Silver Mountain Experience in the summer, and I felt something, something not quite right then. Whoever thought doing a Ouija board was a good idea… Surely, you’ve seen those dodgy films? Surely no one wants to mess around with what they don’t know? No one believes me, but I can feel ‘her’ inside me, clawing at my thoughts, turning the light to dark. The doctors think I’m crazy, my friends and family agree. They plan to do it again, but don’t go, I beg you…
RETRIBUTION: NEW FOR 2018
You believe that you are a good person, an un-tainted soul, but we can smell your sins, we feed on your impurities and relish in your unkind actions. Humans are a disease, and one that shall be purged. The inferno shall rise again and scourge those who continue to act in their disgusting manner, with your actions being weighted in both their good and bad. Join us, as you descend into the depths of the great inferno, where you will come face to face with some of our most nightmarish creatures known to this world, and we’ll show you what hell really looks like!
Strange happenings have been reported to authorities for months now, and the situation has now reached media attention. The secretive organisation U.T.U.R (Unknown Threat Response Unit) have been dispatched to the site, and they request civilians to join the investigation to discover the truth behind these mysterious happenings. Strange lights, odd noises, phone interference, missing persons and more have all led to this point in the investigation. The present nature of what we are dealing with is currently unknown…
As well as these 4 LIVE ACTION HORROR ATTRACTIONS, we’ve got some delicious food on offer, as well as some terrifyingly funny characters roaming around to make sure you are having a good
time… or else! Running on selected nights from the 19th – 31st October 2018, Terror Mountain is a great night out for friends, for family, for a date (if you’re into scaring your date silly of course) or an office outing. Don’t miss out, grab your tickets online at www.terrormountain.co.uk/tickets, and save 20%!
Due to the terrifying nature of Terror Mountain, it isn’t recommended for the under 12’s. If you’re looking or something else to do with the younger ones this Halloween, we are also running a spooky Half Term Halloween event at The Silver Mountain Experience, where we host Terror Mountain.
You can find out more at www.silvermountainexperience.co.uk.
We look forward to scaring you soon…
Boris Johnson expected to resign as Prime Minister today
THE PRIME MINISTER, Boris Johnson is expected to tender his resignation today, according to sources close to Number 10.
Less than a month on from surviving a leadership challenge, the PM’s premiership will come to an end after senior ministers were among those to quit the government in protest at Downing Street’s handling of a series of recent scandals.
The latest of these being Mr Johnson promoting Chris Pincher to the role of deputy chief whip in February despite being told of a sexual misconduct complaint against the Tamworth MP in 2019.
On Tuesday, the PM apologised for allowing this job move to take place – but this did not stop the resignations of both his health secretary Sajid Javid and chancellor Rishi Sunak minutes later.
By Thursday morning, more than 50 Conservative MPs had resigned from their government roles.
Commenting on the news that the Prime Minister will be resigning today as Conservative Party Leader, Andrew RT Davies MS, Leader of the Welsh Conservatives in the Senedd, said: “I’ve always said it was essential for the Prime Minister to hold the confidence of our country, party and parliament. Clearly, that is no longer the case.
“Boris Johnson’s legacy will always be that he ended the deadlock and got Brexit done, delivering on the will of the British people.
“As well as securing a historic victory in 2019, Boris ensured our return to freedom out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Regrettably, it has now become very difficult for him to deliver on the mandate he secured.
“As a friend and supporter of the Prime Minister, I recognise his achievements over the last three years. It now falls to the Conservative Party to select a new leader to deliver on our manifesto commitments for the remainder of this parliament.
“I wish him, Carrie and the rest of his family all the best for the future and thank him for his service to our country.”
Reacting to the resignation of the Prime Minister Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS said:
“Finally this whole sorry and undignified saga has come to an end. It was always abundantly clear that Boris Johnson was unfit to be Prime Minister and those that backed him to the hilt have a responsibility for the mess and destruction he and his brand of populism has had on our country.
“The Welsh public won’t forgive so many Welsh Conservative MPs for propping up Boris Johnson for so long against various scandals while at the same time ordinary families were struggling to cope with the cost-of-living crisis.
“Johnson or no Johnson, for many former Conservative voters the party they once knew is beyond redemption and will not be coming back.”
Werndale Hospital recognised for outstanding patient care in national award
STAFF at Werndale Hospital near Carmarthen have been recognised for the quality of their patient care.
The prestigious ‘Private Hospital Group of the Year’ award is presented to an organisation that has shown excellence in its delivery of care, commitment to the community and innovation within healthcare.
Werndale Hospital was also recognised for their initiatives to support staff in their career progression and wellbeing.
The latest statistics show, 98% of patients at Werndale Hospital were satisfied with their overall level of care, 98% of patients would recommend their care to family and friends, and 98% of patients rated the nursing staff as excellent or very good.
In addition, independent analysis of Circle hospitals’ hip and knee procedure outcomes of health improvement shows that Circle scored 8.4 versus an independent sector average of 7.8 in the hip category, and a score of 15.4 versus an independent sector average of 13.9 in the knee category.
The award presented to Circle Health Group, owners of Werndale Hospital, in London in June, also noted the extraordinary contribution the teams at the hospital had made to the community.
In 2021 alone, Werndale Hospital partnered with Air Ambulance Wales and raised £1,205 to support the charity’s work in the community.
In addition to the charitable work, Werndale Hospital was recognised for it’s commitment to support staff through a series of wellbeing initiatives and career development opportunities. The judges were particularly impressed with the launch of the ‘Be Heard’ survey at the hospital.
The survey looks to empower staff to feedback on everything from the working environment at the hospital through to their own career ambitions. Building directly on the feedback from this survey, the ‘Grow Your Own’ campaign was launched which supported staff to work towards specific qualifications from nursing degrees with partnered universities through to bespoke management programmes and MBA qualifications.
As a direct result of this support for staff at what is a challenging time for healthcare workers, Werndale Hospital and Circle Heath Group were recognised as being a Top 20 Best Large Company to work for.
At the heart of Werndale Hospital’s approach to treating patients is a commitment to the community they serve.
Paolo Pieri, CEO of Circle Health Group, said: “The award is a testament to what an amazing year 2021 was for Werndale Hospital with considerable investment into the facilities and services on offer to patients in west Wales. I couldn’t be prouder of what our staff and doctors have achieved.”
