I want to start this week’s column by thanking the people of Delyn for once again putting their faith in me and allowing me the honour of continuing to serve the communities that shaped me, in the Welsh Parliament for the next five years.
Since being elected in 2016 I have always committed to being a voice for our corner of the country, and to being as open and accessible as possible. In the last few weeks I have spoken to thousands of residents, hearing their concerns and their ideas, and will now do all I can to help improve our communities.
This includes playing my part in improving local services, from education to health, and helping our town centres to thrive, whilst also doing all I can to support and protect our environment. This includes remaining on hand to hear residents’ concerns, and ideas, so that we can work collectively to make improvements.
A key focus for the coming months, and years, will of course be recovery from the coronavirus, for all aspects of our lives. For me, this means ensuring that our local communities and economy get the support they need.
At the end of this week the First Minister will again provide an update on the current coronavirus situation, explaining the circumstances we find ourselves in, as well as the plans for the coming weeks. The vaccination programme continues to offer hope, with almost 2 million people now having received at least one dose of the vaccine. Along with everyone continuing to play their part in following the restrictions in place, we are seeing lower levels of coronavirus within our communities.
Once the First Minister has announced any changes to the current restrictions, I will share them through my Facebook page – Hannah Blythyn MS – and will do my best to continue to offer support and advice with any queries residents or businesses may have.
If Leader readers have any questions or concerns then as ever, please get in touch at Hannah.Blythyn@senedd.wales or on 01352762102.
Thank you once again.
