Many congratulations to Eleri Thomas on becoming the new Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent.

Eleri, a former head of Save The Children in Wales, was awarded an MBE in 2009 for her services to children and young people. She led a national stakeholder group on child sexual exploitation which co-ordinated the UK submission to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and has extensive experience in dealing with Welsh Government, Police Forces, local authorities and health boards to push for improved outcomes for the most vulnerable individuals in our society.

I wish Eleri all the best in her new role, and look forward to supporting the work that she and our PCC Jeff Cuthbert undertake; pushing for effective local police services, tackling anti-social behaviour, and ensuring support is in place for victims of crime across Gwent.

Following the sad passing of long-serving councillor Ed Townsend, a by-election will be held in St Julians this Thursday.


I would encourage local residents to vote for our Welsh Labour candidate, Phil Hourahine.

Phil was born and raised in St Julians, and still lives in the area. Phil will work tirelessly on behalf of all residents in the ward, and has already set out some of his key priorities, including his commitment to working with the Police to tackle anti-social behaviour and pushing for investment and regeneration of the Caerleon Road and Riverside areas.

Speaking about Phil's campaign Cllr Debbie Wilcox, Labour leader of Newport City Council, said: "Phil is a local person who has great experience both professionally and personally to bring to the role of councillor, and he will be a great advocate for the residents of St Julians. As a former resident of the ward myself, I know that Phil will engage with every part of the area and deal with everyday concerns in an efficient and responsible manner. He will make a great contribution to the wider Labour team in St Julians and in Newport City Council."

Remember to vote for Phil & Labour this Thursday.

It’s great to see Newport Citizens Advice Bureau promoting Scams Awareness Month, which runs through July.

Scams affect millions of families across the UK every year, and their impact can be ruinous. Traditional methods of scamming – including doorstep selling and cold-call ‘vishing’ – continue to pose a threat. However, we also need to be wary of a multitude of new and developed techniques employed by scammers; from fake IT services and premium rate text traps to online scams and the sale of a diverse range of counterfeit goods.

Newport Citizens Advice Bureau are asking consumers to act on their concerns, and to obtain advice from the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline 03454 04 05 06 and report scams to Action Fraud 0300 123 2040. They are also hosting a Scams Awareness Campaign stand in Friars Walk at the end of July.

For more information on Scams Awareness visit www.citizensadvice.org.uk/scams-awareness-month, or follow @NewportCAB on twitter for updates and tips on beating the scammers.
