A REAL, LIVE MEETING
Yes, we are allowed, once again, to meet outdoors – up to 30 of us in an organised manner – yay! So, we look forward to seeing you at 7.30pm onTuesday 11 May at the front of Monmouth Comprehensive School to get updates on the Library of Things, the exciting Climate Future Festival, other goings on and a catch up on your news. Bring something to sit on, something to drink and wrap up warm – the evenings tend to get chilly; we will provide the hand gel.
This is likely to be the only opportunity you have to meet your candidates, ask them questions, and hear what they have to say. The candidates are (in alphabetical order):
Ian Chandler – Green Party Peter Fox – Conservative Hugh Kocan – Plaid Cymru Catrin Maby – Labour Nicholas Ramsay – Independent Jo Watkins – Lib Dem
The Hustings will be facilitated by Haydn Cullen-Jones, and he wants the questions that you want answers to. Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday 27 April.
Each candidate will make a brief opening statement. Haydn will then work through the questions, rotating the opening speaker, finishing each question by returning to the questioner if present and then opening discussion to the floor.
We look forward to seeing you for what promises to be a lively and interesting discussion. Here are the details for this Zoom event:-

And your views, please, on a couple of things:-
Viridor is preparing a bid to Monmouthshire County Council for a contract to operate the recycling centres across the county. They would like to focus their attention on how they can support the local community and obtain a better understanding of the voluntary sector organisations and how they can be supported. For example DIY Clubs that could repurpose wood, craft clubs that could use unwanted textiles etc. We have asked for a Recycle Shop at Mitchel Troy, or preferably at a centre town location. Please email Grant Cummings with your requests/needs – GCummings@viridor.co.uk
