It’s been another busy week representing Cynon Valley in the Senedd. I’ve listed below some of my highlights from the past seven days.



1. Meeting with Head Office staff in Barclays Bank, Aberdare.

2. Regular catch up on air with local radio station GTFM.

3. Visits to local businesses, including DB Mouldings in Abercynon and Abigail Lewis Photography in Mountain Ash.

4. Presented certificates of appreciation to Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal volunteers (pictured). It was a lovely surprise to also receive a certificate myself.

5. Went along to the Gravity Bike Park, in Dare Valley Country Park, to discuss tourism.

6. Welcomed news that the Minor Injuries Unit at Ysybyty Cwm Cynon would re-open on a phased basis, something I had been campaigning for.



1. Questioned the Climate Change Minister on issues relating to flooding.

2. Spoke about the important work museums do on International Museum Day.
