Raj of India

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has congratulated the Raj of India restaurant in Caerphilly on the quality of their food.

Mr David nominated the Indian Restaurant for the Tiffin Cup Parliamentary Award and the restaurant received a commendation certificate for the excellence of their food.

Wayne David said, "The Raj of India is an excellent restaurant and this has been recognised by the organisers of the Tiffin Cup.  The food is of the highest quality and the service is first rate, not least because of the friendliness of the staff."

Barclays Bank

 

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, and Hefin David, Labour Assembly Member for Caerphilly, have joined Labour Councillor Sean Morgan of Nelson in criticising Barclays Bank for its decision to close its branch in Nelson without consultation.

A week ago Barclays Bank announced that it intended to close its Nelson branch on 16 December. This means that the nearest Barclays Bank branch for Nelson people will be in Ystrad Mynach.

The decision by Barclays Bank was taken without any consultation with customers of the bank in Nelson, nor was there consultation with members of the public and elected representatives.

Having made the decision to close the branch, Barclays now want to have consultation on a “new way of banking”.

Wayne David said, “Barclay’s attitude is totally unacceptable. Barclays should have consulted with its customers and local people, and their representatives, before any decision was taken. Barclay’s must think again.”

Hefin David added, “The high-handed attitude of Barclays is unhelpful. It is ridiculous that Barclay’s are now asking us about the impact of the closure on the local community when they have said that a decision has already been taken.”

Cllr Sean Morgan said, “This is a devastating decision and I would urge the banks’ leaders to rethink this decision as there is ample opportunity to save costs by downsizing this branch without leaving the community bereft of the many services the bank offers”.

William Street and Cross_Street residents

Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has received a petition from residents from William Street and Cross Street in Abertridwr.  The residents are concerned about dangerous driving and ‘excessive’ parking.

Mr David received a petition with over 30 names and was photographed with local residents and their children, who had made two posters to highlight their case.

The residents told Mr David that they were subjected to ‘boy racers’ in the street and there was a real danger to children being struck.  There was also a huge amount of parking in the street from those who were collecting takeaways from the main street.

 Mr David agreed to press Caerphilly County Borough Council to consider introducing a one-way system for the street, with access only, and traffic calming measures.  Mr David also said he would press Caerphilly Council to have Residents Only Parking on at least one side of the street.

 After the meeting, Wayne David said, "Clearly local residents feel very strongly about the situation.  I very much hope that the Council will listen to people’s concerns and introduce measures to make the road safer and far less congested".
