From Porthcawl's coast, my welsh stone for Hands Across The Border's "The Auld Acquaintance Cairn". With only 6 days to go until the referendum, everyone in Wales, England and Northern Ireland that values our shared United Kingdom needs make our voices heard. #nothanks#indyref
An opportunity for people of all nations and ages to come together and build a permanent and physical symbol into the landscape; in the lead up to the Scottish referendum, the Cairn is intended to act as a symbol of our commitment to stay together.

On what was my last, and busy day in Westminster before the Party conference recess, I was able to take a few minutes out to answer a few questions from eager pupils from Litchard Primary. Visiting Parliament for an equally busy of tours and workshops, I was asked a number of insightful questions about how I spend my day, how often I go to the House of Lords, and what I liked best about being an MP.
It seemed pupils were most impressed (as most people are) by the massive gold throne that sits in the House of Lords. The children were also given the opportunity to hold their very own vote, deciding between: swimming pools for every school in Wales, or banning smoking. By a slender margin, but most conscientiously they opted for banning smoking.

On the starting line in Monmouth with "Cycle for MND" on day 4 of their epic 1000 mile Lands End to John O'Groats ride, intended to raise much needed awareness and funds for Motor Neurone Disease research.
Last November I met with Bridgend resident Justin Hostettler-Davies after he completed an epic 650 mile walk around the Welsh coast to raise awareness and funds for research, and agreed to take part in his even bigger and more ambitious trek from South to North coasts this year.
Around 2 people in every 100,000 are diagnosed with MND and there are about 5,000 people with the disease at any one time in the UK. The only way to find a cure is to increase awareness of this terrible disease and raise funds to enable dedicated people to research what causes it.
