I visited Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Dur, the new Welsh medium school that opened in September in Sandfields. It's a fantastic facility and I really enjoyed meeting with pupils who were so enthusiastic about their new school.
The 11th Port Talbot Scouts gave me a grilling when I visited them at their base in the Sandfields to talk about Parliament and democracy. I really enjoyed the opportunity to attend the session and help them learn more about how Parliament and democracy works. The Scouts provide a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in outdoor activities, as well as learning new skills and supporting the local community.
My latest street surgery covered Sandfields East and Sandfields West. I was joined by David Rees AM, Councillors Sean Pursey and Ted Latham from the East ward and Councillors Suzanne Paddison, Rob Wood and Oliver Davies from the West ward. It was a lovely day to be out knocking on doors and we had lots of door-step conversations.
On a choppy day in Swansea Bay I took part in the 49th Annual Round The Pier Swim. We took a proper battering from the waves, but despite the difficult conditions in the bay we got there in the end. Congratulations to all who took part and my thanks to the Aberavon Green Stars for organising another great round the pier swim.
