This has been an extremely strange few months in so many ways, and I hope everyone continues to keep safe in these unprecedented times.
As children are now back in school, I want to thank all staff who have worked tirelessly to make that happen as safely as possible. I know how difficult this time has been for many of our young people and I hope it will be a great positive for children to see teachers and friends.
The work done in Torfaen in response to the pandemic by public service workers, other key workers and volunteers has been inspirational and has really held our community together at a difficult time. I also want to pay tribute to the work done by our Councillors, and our MS Lynne, on helping the people of Torfaen.
With the renewed restrictions, I know this is not an easy time, but thank you to everyone taking care to follow the guidelines, social distancing, wearing masks where needed and washing hands, in order to keep one and another safe.
If there's ever an issue I can help you with as a constituent, or something that you'd like to raise with me, you can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to help.
