THE Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies, has officially opened the new offices of two Members of the Senedd in Abergele.

Clwyd West MS Darren Millar and North Wales Regional MS Sam Rowlands decided to set up a joint office after their successful elections last May.

They moved into their offices in Commodore House in the North Wales Business Park last September, but COVID-19 restrictions prevented an official opening event from being held until last week.

The Welsh Conservatives have also opened a new party HQ for North Wales in the building.

Speaking after last Thursday’s event, Mr Millar said: “It has been a pleasure to represent the people of Clwyd West for the past 15 years and I was delighted that Sam and I were able to secure new offices in such a great location.

“We decided to share the offices in order to provide a better and more convenient service for our constituents and moved in back in September.

“With the COVID restrictions coming to an end we were finally able to hold an official opening and, with the Leader of the Opposition in the Senedd, Andrew RT Davies, visiting North Wales last week, it was the perfect opportunity to cut the ribbon."

Mr Rowlands added: “A proper base for the Welsh Conservatives in North Wales has long been needed and I am delighted that last year we were able to make it happen.

“The new offices are in an ideal location and it made sense for Darren and me to be based here.

“Our team of staff work from the offices throughout the week and, when we are not in Cardiff, we also operate from here.”

Andrew RT Davies said: "I was delighted to undertake the official opening of the new offices for Darren and Sam.

“I know how hard they both work for North Wales so sharing and office in this way is a great idea.”

The official opening was also attended by shadow education minister, Laura Ann Jones MS, business owners from the area and other elected representatives.
