Festive Wishes from your Local AM

As Christmas fast approaches, local Assembly Member Paul Davies has extended his festive wishes to the people of Pembrokeshire.

Mr Davies said, “2017 has been a very busy and interesting year for Pembrokeshire. This year brought the enthronement of the Rt. Revd Joanna Penberthy, elected as the 129th Bishop of St David’s and Wales’ first female Bishop.”

“2017 also changed the face of our local politics, following the local elections in May, which delivered some big changes to Pembrokeshire County Council – and 2017 was also the year that St David’s tirelessly campaigned to become City of Culture. Now, whilst that bid was not successful, Pembrokeshire was once again on the map, broadcasting itself as a County of cultural significance and importance.”

Pembrokeshire Assembly Members join forces to “make the invisible visible”

Pembrokeshire’s two Assembly Members, Paul Davies and Angela Burns joined forces last week in the National Assembly to support Crohns and Colitis UK’s “Make the invisible visible” campaign.

Crohns and Colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease which affects around 300,000 people across the UK. Its symptoms often include chronic fatigue, extreme diarrhoea and dramatic weight loss. However due to social attitudes and no obvious visible signs it is often regarded as an invisible illness.

Local AM Supports 16 Days of Activism Campaign

Paul has pledged his support to the NUS Wales 16 Days of Activism Campaign.Local Assembly Member Paul Davies is supporting a campaign led by the National Union of Students to help end gender based violence in Wales. Sadly, figures from the NUS show that every ten minutes, an adolescent girl dies as a result of violence and every week, more than two Women in England and Wales are killed by a partner or ex-partner. Mr Davies is backing the NUS Wales’ 16 Days of Activism Campaign, which pledges to raise awareness of gender based violence in all its forms by encouraging people to talk more openly about their experiences.

Mr Davies said: “I’m helping to do all I can to raise awareness of gender based violence, by encouraging people to speak out about their experiences and help break the stigma. It’s so important that we create safe and non-judgmental environments for people to come forward and talk about the abuse they’ve faced or witnessed. Violence and abuse is not acceptable in our society and so it’s crucial that we do all that we can to lift the shame from those affected by gender based violence and shift the blame from them to their perpetrators.”
