This week I met with the new co-founders and members at Tribe Fitness in Flint. This new venture seeks to do more than provide health and fitness services for members, it is also key to helping people make new friends and bringing the community closer together.

Tribe Fitness, located on Church Street in the heart of Flint, was co-founded by Karen Turton and Ethan Brunt to ensure that people in the town and surrounding areas had a welcoming environment no matter what their fitness level or experience.

Tribe Fitness is open 7am-11am and 4pm-9pm Monday to Friday and 9am-2pm on Saturday and Sunday. So, plenty of times that suit everyone. Read more “Tribe Fitness in Flint”

If you have ever used a paper tissue there is a good chance it’s come from Kimberly Clark, Flint site.

I joined Hannah Blythyn AM, Unite – the Trade Union – to see the work they are doing and learn of new apprenticeships being put in place soon. I first went for the opening in July 1992!

Britain’s high streets are the heart of our local communities, and we all want them to be places everyone can enjoy and be proud of.

After a hugely inspiring 2018, in which our very own Holywell secured a highly commended award, The Great British High Street Awards are back, searching for the UK’s most dynamic high streets that not only bring local communities together, but pave the way for the high streets of tomorrow.

Run by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (UK), and in partnership with Visa, the Awards aim to celebrate the amazing work that local businesses and individuals put into their communities. Read more “Great British High Street Award 2019”

Today, (21 June 2019) I joined the Guide Dogs charity to experience first hand what it is like to navigate our streets with a guide dog when you have sight loss.

The afternoon was organised by the Guide Dogs charity and allowed me to walk around Flint with guide dog Mason who ensured that I was kept safe whilst walking with his vision impaired.

Along the walk I was able to talk to the charity about the issues they are campaigning on. Two of the big campaigns at the moment are tackling the over-use of street furniture and ensuring that people know it is illegal to refuse access to a premises or mode of transport if they have a guide dog.
