Swansea East AM, Mike Hedges has spent Assembly Recess week visiting local groups in the area.
Mike said.. ‘people assume that these recess weeks are extra holidays for AM’s – actually, they are good opportunities for me to visit a variety of voluntary sector groups in the area and to attend meetings and events I would be unable to attend on weekdays due to working at the Assembly.
I am aware of the marvellous work undertaken by volunteers who provide such vital opportunities in many of our communities and I have spent this week visiting a number of them.
The Great Ravine clean up in Blaen Y Maes on 20 Feb is a good example of local people, councillors and Gwalia Housing Association working together to enhance their community; I was pleased to visit and support this work.
On Tuesday, I was pleased to visit the ’10 o clock group’ of older Morriston Residents who meet at the Deer’s Leap every Tuesday. I spoke about recent developments in Swansea East, such as the new university developments and new schools.
Later on Tuesday, I visited the Multi-Cultural event held in Blaen Y Maes Community centre.
My week has been packed with such activities and I would like to thank all of the volunteers who give up their time to run such activities. ‘
