Seaside: A meeting will be held at the Selwyn Samuel Centre

RESIDENTS in Glanymor will have the opportunity to raise concerns about anti-social behaviour in Seaside with the council, police and elected representatives at a public meeting this week.

From 5.30pm on Thursday (Apr 18), representatives from the relevant authorities and the local MP, AM and county councillors will be in the Selwyn Samuel Centre to hear from local residents about the recent problems in the Seaside area and try to find some constructive solutions.

Cllr John Prosser, who represents Glanymor as a county councillor, said: “I promised residents I would arrange for residents to meet with the MP, AM, County Councillors, Town councillors, county council officers, the police and other interested parties to discuss the issues in Seaside.

“We are already working with various groups within the Glanymor ward, and whilst there is no easy fix I believe we can improve the area if we all work together. The meeting is open to everyone in the Glanymor community, and I would encourage as many people as possible to join us on Thursday so that we can try to influence the decision-making process.”

Nia Griffith MP added: “Seaside is a very stable and close-knit community where residents take a real pride in their area. It is totally unacceptable that a handful of individuals should be allowed to make their neighbours lives a misery.

“I am calling on all the relevant authorities to use their powers to the full to stamp out anti-social behaviour. To that end, I welcome measures such as the imposition of an order on a particular property limiting the number of visitors, as a way to help restore respect for the neighbours.

“But we need sustained efforts to drive home the message that we will not tolerate any anti-social behaviour in Seaside, and to make sure that all residents can enjoy their lives in peace and quiet.”

Lee Waters AM added: “Anti-social behaviour from a small minority of people can have a devastating effect on our communities. And there is no simple solution.

“Nia Griffith and I, along with County Councillors John Prosser and Louvain Roberts, have been meeting regularly with residents, council officers and the police to tackle this issue, and we’re holding a public meeting to give everyone the opportunity to raise their concerns.”

    Councillors Louvain Roberts and Councillor Sean Rees has. and this meeting is an ad hoc meeting by Labour. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2028534530788585&set=a.1389924857982892&type=3&theater

    LABOUR chasing votes again an photos in the papers. Like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Amanda Carter has this in hand with the next public meeting with the police commissioner Dafydd Llewellyn and Cllr Sean Rees and Cllr Louvain Roberts (Now not Labour but Independent) with the backing of the community from the first public meeting. If Cllr Prosser had the decency to engage with the community he would know.
    He is now Jumping on the bandwagon and undermining the community’s meeting, It is not only disrespectful but it shows contempt for the good work these two Independent Councillors and Amanda who have engaged with the community at Seaside Social club, by being active with the residents and the wider community.

    NO. this one Councillor with Labour as it looks ,just want to be seen jumping into the driving seat once again with an MP and with an AM. possibly for votes.

    Seriously, Credit where it is due and that is with the community engagement from the first meeting and with the follow up and continuity with the police at the next community meeting. Not this ad hoc meeting that is set aside away from the Glan Y Mor ward Ward, Away from the residents and tenants there.

    This is just seen by real voters as a Political propaganda for Labour to bee seen good, a strive for votes and media attention. It is so disappointing they have not got the respect and ability to engage. To go out and plan to undermine the good work that is already in progress is disgraceful. Shame on you

Llanelli Councillor Resigns from Plaid Cymru

SHOCK ANNOUNCEMENT JUST DAYS BEFORE THE GENERAL ELECTION

Jordan Randall, Llanelli Rural Councillor for Swiss Valley says he has resigned from Plaid Cymru because he is disappointed with the choice of Plaid candidate again for the forthcoming General Election.

The full statement, sent to The Llanelli Herald today: “This is not a decision that I’ve taken lightly but one which has been a long time coming. 
“I’ve had the privilege of being a Llanelli Rural Councillor in recent years to try my very best in making a difference where I can. I now look forward to continuing this work as an Independent Councillor for Swiss Valley, which will always be my priority. 


“I’ve been very disappointed with the choice of Plaid candidate again for the forthcoming General Election. If the party is to make any progress in the Town, then it needs a candidate who is local to the area and actually understands the everyday issues which face our communities. We do not need someone who is completely out of touch and unfortunately just sees Llanelli as a stepping stone to advance their own career. 


“Ongoing personal vendettas now seem to be the most important thing for Plaid Cymru at a local level. I no longer recognise the party. The party already lost a number of lifelong members in recent years due to the negativity locally. Astonishingly, they have also taken the decision to no longer have an all year round office presence within the Town. 
“Calls for national leadership have simply gone unanswered, with new leader Adam Price unwilling to intervene in any way to try to achieve a way forward.


“I am also not happy and have been for some time with Plaid’s position on Brexit as they are simply ignoring the wishes of the people of Llanelli as the Town overwhelmingly voted to leave in the referendum, a decision which whether people voted to Remain or Leave ought to be one which is respected. 


“Party politics is broken but I remain committed to campaigning to improve our public services, helping to sort out any concerns and supporting ideas which will strengthen and grow our community.”

Plaid’s pro-EU Saturday push in Trimsaran

DUBBED Pro-EU Saturday, the 30th November in Trimsaran saw the local girl and MP candidate Mari Arthur, descend on her home village of Trimsaran, to draw attention to the £680million of European Union (EU) funds that Wales receives every single year.


The only Remain candidate in Llanelli, Mari Arthur was proudly joined by Plaid Cymru regional AM Helen Mary Jones, Wales MEP Jill Evans, County Councillor Kim Broom, and a whole host of supporters, to speak with as many people as possible in the community ahead of the General Election on 12th December.


Plaid Cymru candidate Mari Arthur said: “I was thrilled to be joined in Trimsaran by so many people to talk about why EU funds have been vital for the area. We are a net beneficiary, which means that, as a nation, we get £245milion more than we pay into the EU.


“Trimsaran Leisure Centre itself is a building that received £180k from EU funds and is now the beating heart of the community. It’s great to see how this is still having a positive impact on people living in the village and further afield.”


West Wales and the Valleys is a “less developed region”, which means it is one of the “poorest regions” in Europe, as its GDP is less than 75% of the EU average. This means that £680million of EU funds comes to Wales, in the form of:


Structural Funds which amounts to just over £4 billion in extra funds to Wales since 2000, including £180,000 towards the build of Trimsaran Leisure Centre Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with £200million a year – almost a third of all EU funding in Wales – providing vital support to 16,0000 farms in Wales.


Other Funds that help support everything else, like the arts and biodiversity. Speaking from Trimsaran, Jill Evans MEP, said: “It’s wonderful to be here today in Trimsaran and to see the fantastic support on the doorstep for Plaid Cymru, and the only local candidate on the Llanelli ticket: Mari Arthur. It’s very heartening!


“Obviously, like elsewhere in Wales, there’s a real feeling of frustration on the doorstep in relation to Brexit – among those who voted to leave AND those who voted to remain three years ago. Plaid Cymru is proudly Remain, because we believe Brexit – particularly a No Deal Brexit – would be catastrophic for Wales.


“Ask yourselves this: will Westminster Government honour this level of funding, post-Brexit? It is almost certainly a No. Vote Plaid.”


Helen Mary Jones AM, also at Trimsaran Leisure Centre, said: “It was wonderful to be at Trimsaran and to have a glimpse into what the future could be like: with Kim Broom speaking up for the community at Plaid Cymru-led Carmarthenshire Council, myself at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay, Jill in Brussels and then Mari at Westminster. It would be wonderful to have a team in place that could deliver comprehensive support to the community.”
The Pro-EU day highlighted the positive impact that EU funding has had on the lives of people and communities across the Llanelli constituency.
