Covid Community Action

Ive represented my village, Alltwen in the Swansea Valley, as a Community Councillor for over three years now and am currently Chair of Cilybebyll Community Council. Unlike other elected positions, being a community councillor is a voluntary role and Ive found it to be such a rewarding one: It is the closest tier of democracy to people and is a great way of getting to know and understand the needs and character of your local neighbourhood.

As the Coronavirus crisis started to hit Wales and we edged towards the inevitable lockdown, I sensed that many of my neighbours were becoming anxious about how they would cope with everyday essential tasks such as shopping and collection of medication. I had heard how friends in Cardiff had started a volunteer network in their area and decided, that as no plan had been established by the local authority at that point, that I would do the same in my ward in my capacity as community councillor.
