Before jumping on the train back down to London for what is to be another busy week – especially with the Budget on Wednesday – I was able to attend the opening of the new school complex in Holywell.

It sees an investment of £30 million into our local community by Flintshire County Council and the Welsh Assembly Government. The site will be two separate schools Ysgol Treffynnon (a secondary school) and Maes-y-Felin (a primary school). These schools will ensure that children in Holywell, and from the surrounding villages, have world-class facilities.

I want to congratulate all those who worked hard to make these schools become reality.

I am appalled by the decision from Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) to close the Holywell branch of NatWest on the 6th June 2017.

RBS argue that the reason for the closure is an 18% decline in the number of transactions in the branch. RBS state that they will be “communicating with customers affected by the closure”.

This is a blow to the town. We have seen a growing number of closures of banks in recent years. This is leaving people without a branch service which they need for face-to-face meetings and day-to-day banking. Read more “Holywell Branch of NatWest set to close”
