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.

I’m supporting the ‘Stay Safe’ campaign aimed at preventing members of the public from drowning in quarry lakes, reservoirs and similar types of open water.

‘Stay Safe’ – which is being promoted by the Mineral Productions Association, the Royal National Lifeboat Association, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and the Royal Life Saving Society –is particularly keen to emphasise the risks posed by ‘cold water shock’.  This reaction to very cold water can cause a rapid and involuntary bout of gasping and water insulation, which can be a threat to life within two minutes.

The campaign compliments the UK Drowning Prevention Strategy 2016 which aims to halve the 400 accidental drownings that occur across the UK each year. It’s important that we raise awareness of cold water shock and drowning, especially among our young people who perhaps are most at risk.
