Peter Scott, mayor of St Asaph

I would like to take this opportunity to wish residents and visitors of St Asaph a very happy, peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Many of us will be looking forward to a welcome break with some time away from work.

However I appreciate that others will be working right through the Christmas period ensuring vital services are being delivered.

May I take this opportunity to send my sincere thanks to all of you.

I wish to thank everyone for their support to council as I continue to support you in 2020.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.

Mayor and Mayoress Peter and Susan Scott.

Gavin Harris, Mayor of Ruthin

AS 2019 draws to a close and a new decade dawns, Ruthin Town Council has been working hard to support the community in Ruthin and to bring about improvements that will have a lasting benefit for the town.

Whilst we are fortunate to live in a wonderful part of the country and a characterful and historic town, Ruthin’s greatest asset is its community. Ruthin Town Council is pleased to support a variety of community groups, events and activities throughout the year which would not happen without the dedication and hard work of volunteers from a wide range of organisations, and our thanks are extended to them.

As Mayor and also chair of the working group, I would like to extend a huge vote of thanks to all those who have supported the Old Courthouse project so far and look forward to the spring when it will open to the public and as a fantastic resource for the community at the heart of the town.

The new year will bring about further opportunities, but through commitment and co-operation Ruthin Town Council will continue to work pro-actively with the community and other partners to deliver initiatives that enhance the lives of Ruthin residents.

On behalf of the 15 volunteer town councillors, town clerk and the Old Courthouse manager, may I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Gwyneth Kensler, county councillor for Denbigh Central

I WISH everyone in Denbigh a very happy Christmas and a very healthy New Year.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to our community with your volunteer work during this past year; without your hard work and dedication, Denbigh would be a much poorer place, physically and socially.

I won’t name any one group or club because there are so many and you all do excellent work in your various fields.

We also thank those local private firms who support our community.

2020 will see many changes to our historic town once again – the former North Wales Hospital development, yet more houses being built there and on other sites.

On a positive note, Denbigh will be one of the towns to represent Wales in Britain in Bloom and we shall be welcoming the Urdd Eisteddfod to town during the last week of May.

What a fantastic job all of the Urdd fund-raising committees throughout the county have done. Diolch.

Please, may we enjoy warm sunny weather during the Eisteddfod week!

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i chi i gyd.

Jon Haddy, Mayor of Llangollen

Wishing all your readers a blessed Christmas and a most prosperous New Year.

Mark Isherwood, North Wales AM

CONGRATULATIONS to the four new Welsh Conservative MPs in North East Wales, and to Sanjoy Sen for coming so close in Alyn and Deeside.

I campaigned with them all and all are friends.

North Wales has nine constituencies and all but two now have a Welsh

Conservative MP.

I wish all readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020.
