Labour announce general election candidate

Published

on

CEREDIGION LABOUR PARTY have announced that their candidate for the fast approaching general
election will be Dinah Mulholland.

Dinah first moved to Ceredigion 19 years ago. As a single mother, she has experienced firsthand the issues
austerity has on parents and children.

She said: “There are council wards in Ceredigion with similar rates of child poverty to inner city Birmingham. Rural poverty brings with it its own set of issues, such as isolation, lack of transport, disengagement from community and in young people, a hopelessness and despair. This will have devastating repercussions in Ceredigion.

“It is vital for the future of our children and for the safety of our older and more vulnerable people, that we vote for the Labour Party; the only party that represents opposition to the vicious ideology of Theresa May.”

Beginning in the early 80s, Dinah’s record of campaigning for equality and social justice speaks for itself.

Her work in Ceredigion includes her former role as Inaugural Chair of the Ceredigion Domestic Abuse Forum;
Co-Director of the Transition Llambed Development Trust; and she led the Save Aberystwyth Post Office
campaign in 2016.

Presently, Dinah works as a Specialist Student Support Lecturer at UWTSD Lampeter, and also manages
the busy People’s Market in Victoria Hall, Lampeter.

Dinah is also standing as councillor for Llangybi Ward and will finish this campaign before immediately
embarking on the road to becoming MP for Ceredigion.

Ysgol Bro Pedr raise funds for life saving machine

Published

on

PUPILS at Ysgol Bro Pedr have raised enough money to buy a defibrillator machine for the school.

The idea came after 15 Year 11 pupils achieved their Level 3 Emergency First Aid Qualification with Ceredigion Youth Service. Pupils felt that it was incredibly important that they and others at the school had the skills, knowledge and equipment to use in an emergency.

Mrs Caryl Jones and pupils raised an outstanding £1,150 through organising a bake sale at the school on 28 March 2019. The school extends their thanks to Lampeter businesses ‘Oh My Cod’ and ‘Y Becws’ for their kind contribution towards the sale.

Guto Crompton, School Based Youth Worker said: “Although first aid is not a mandatory part of the school curriculum in Wales, young people at Ysgol Bro Pedr felt that it should be something that all pupils knew about. This would help them to know what to do in an emergency, whether that be in the school or out in the community. Pupils worked hard to achieve their First Aid qualification which covered aspect such as CPR, casualty management and the use of a defibrillator.”

The defibrillator machine will be placed in the school reception.
