Plans to create a "key cultural hub" at Llandudno Museum are set to be helped by £140,000 of council cash.

In total, £1.367m of the £1.5m cost of the work has been secured from sources including the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Decisions will be made on other grants and funding totalling £450,000 in the first half of 2018.

At a meeting on Tuesday, Conwy council's cabinet approved proposals to underwrite £139,344 of the sum.

Llandudno Museum is owned by a charity and puts on exhibitions, workshops, lectures and family activities.

A report to the cabinet said in order to turn it into a "key cultural hub", it needed more interactive galleries and exhibition areas as well as improvements to the cafe, entrance and shop.
