Christmas message from Gareth Davies, MS for Vale of Clwyd

"2021 marks my first year in post as Vale of Clwyd’s Member of the Welsh Parliament. Since being elected in May I have had the privilege to serve constituents raising local concerns within the Senedd, and have met with many groups, organisations and individuals who contribute so much towards helping improve and support the lives of people within our communities.

"Whilst the past 12 months have continued to be unpredictable and unprecedented, and I certainly don’t think any of us anticipated or wanted to be heading into another festive period with the potential of further risks or restrictions related to Covid-19, the shadow cast by this pandemic has not dimmed Vale of Clwyd’s spirits.

"I’d like to whole-heartedly thank all the groups and community champions I have met over these past few months for everything they do and give to our area and to others.

"As we head into 2022 with further investment into our area from the levelling up fund and the highest latest recorded GVA growth in Wales, the future in the Vale of Clwyd is looking brighter.

"I would like to wish all residents in Vale of Clwyd a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
