Latest global figures reveal Wales has now vaccinated a greater share of its total population than any other country in the world.

To illustrate the progress, over 55% of those aged 18 – 30 have receive a jab in Wales, whereas in England vaccinations have yet to be offered to under 30s.

This is a truly remarkable achievement. We are on the road to recovery and there is reason to be hopeful thanks to the vaccination teams hard work and dedication over these past six months.

The staff and volunteers in Wrexham are a key part of this incredible effort.

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, I visited the team at Alyn Family Doctors in Llay to offer my congratulations as they delivered their 10,000th vaccine.

I also want to thank all the people that have come forward and received their jabs.

While the majority are attending their appointments, I am concerned to hear increasing numbers of people are missing their allocated times as this creates difficulties for those administering the vaccinations, such as Alyn Family Doctors. Some people will, of course, have genuine reasons for missing their appointment but I would urge everyone in Wrexham to get vaccinated. Not only will it protect you, but it will also help protect your loved ones and the wider community. By working together, we can help keep Wrexham safe.

Essential work started on 1 June aimed at improving sections of the A483 around the town. The work, which will take 6 weeks to complete, will specifically take place between junctions 5 and 7 and will ‘increase the length of 2 central reserve crossovers together with drainage and barrier upgrades.’ Further improvements are scheduled to take place later this year. The A483 is clearly vitally important to Wrexham and the surrounding areas and I am pleased the Welsh Government is investing in our local infrastructure.

Welsh Government funding has also been secured by the trustees at St Margaret’s Church in Garden Village. A £25,000 grant has been awarded via the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme to help replace the Community Hall’s leaking roof. I’m pleased to have supported the application and I congratulate John and all the trustees for their hard work. St Margaret’s is a valuable asset to the local community and I am sure this funding will make a positive difference.
