Today I met with representatives from the Great British High Street awards to discuss how Delyn towns could take part in this prestigious award.
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”
It was a pleasure to join residents in Mold for the Great Get Together 2019.
A big thank you must go to Mold Town Council for organising the event and celebrating the values of my colleague Jo Cox.
It was great to see this afternoons tea party in town.
I have joined The Climate Coalition in Parliament to support the ‘Show the Love’ campaign.
‘Show the Love’ is an annual celebration for the people, places and life that we love and want to protect from climate change. Hundreds of thousands of constituents up and down the country have been crafting green hearts, holding events and starting conversations about the impacts of climate change on our doorstep here in the UK.
Last October saw the release of the ground-breaking IPCC report on climate change from the scientific community, which revealed the stark difference between a world where we don’t act enough to curb dangerous emissions trends, and one where we do and keep temperature increase globally below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Today (11 April 2018) I visited the Co-Op in Mold to support them in their goal of raising awareness of autism. This followed on from World Autism Awareness Week (which took place on 26 March – 2 April 2018).
There are around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK – that’s more than 1 in 100. If you include their families, autism is part of daily life for 2.8 million people. It is a hidden disability and 70% of autistic adults say that they are not getting the help they need and it makes them feel isolated.
The National Autistic Society Cymru states on their website that:
“Trips to the shops can be stressful for autistic children and adults. Stress can affect behaviour and can have a profound effect on a person’s ability to do day-to-day activities like shopping. Frustration or anxiety can be caused by not knowing why we need to shop or what will happen when shopping, and a person can be overwhelmed by sensory experiences at the shops.” Read more “Autism Awareness Month”
