Party Chairman campaigns in Wales
Sayeeda this week visited Wales to support Conservatives there ahead of the local elections. Beginning the day in Newport, Sayeeda joined Andrew Davies AM, Cheryl Gillan MP & Cllr Bob Greenland (WCCA Chairman) at the Newport Dragons stadium for the launch of the Welsh local election manifesto.
She then travelled to Monmouth Shire Hall for a demonstration of the Monmouthpedia Project – a collaborative initiative with Wikipedia developing ground breaking local tourism. She was met by Council Leader Cllr Peter Fox, David Davies MP, Deputy Leader & Cabinet Member for Enterprise Cllr Bob Greenland and Conservative candidates.
Sayeeda next stopped at Welsh Women’s Aid, a centre for women in Cardiff. Met by Children & Young Persons Manager Rebecca Burns, Sayeeda made a tour of the facility and discussed the important work of the centre.
After a drop in with the local media Sayeeda moved on to Barry, where Hot Diggidy Dog owner Simon Llewellyn greeted her with a range of extra hot sauces to try. The business has grown from its site on a council-run enterprise park and has great plans for its new products.
Sayeeda rounded off the day with a Fundraiser for South Wales Central at Fynon Wen, Cardiff before journeying north for her next day of visits.
