Bridgend Alzheimer’s Society moved to new offices in May this year and Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon dropped in to see them last week.

The move from Glanrhyd Hospital to Bridgend Industrial Estate this year has meant that they have modern, larger premises which are more accessible for people. The new offices are in the old Health Authority Building in North Court Road.

Madeleine said:

"I had a cheque for the Bridgend Alzheimer’s Society after completing a parliamentary questionnaire and handed it over to Kerry Phelps Service Manager as a donation towards their activities."

Kerry and her Team explained that having received an award from the Big Lottery Fund they are now providing a Voice & Choice Advocacy Service and Befriending Service. Also another new support project Try Something New for people living with dementia introducing gardening, IT skills, cookery, armchair aerobics and arts & crafts.

It was good to hear that their other projects the Feel Good Cafes in Bridgend and Porthcawl were well established, giving an opportunity for dementia sufferers and their friends/carers to relax together and share information. Singing for the Brain was also going well, a stimulating and fun experience held in Nolton Church Hall in Bridgend.  Kerry also told me about Dementia Friends which was launched in February in Wales. Encouraging staff in businesses, hotels, voluntary organisations and doctor’s surgeries to undertake a training course which gives them a better understanding of dementia and how they can help support their clients.

This morning I spoke to Oliver Hides from BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales about the emerging evidence showing the trouble the UK government is having recruiting reserves into the armed forces, but into the army in particular. I point out how the government's focus on cost cutting: losing regular forces before an effective system has in place to replace them with reserves is flawed. More also needs to be done to make the transition into the Reserves smoother, with some people waiting many months for medical assessments and stuck in the application system.

A News Release from the Office of Madeleine Moon MP

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon hosted a NATO event at Carnegie House last Tuesday.  Following on from the NATO Summit held in Newport in September, Madeleine invited Hugh Bayley MP, President of NATO Parliamentary Assembly to the Bridgend constituency.

Madeleine said:

I was delighted to welcome Hugh Bayley MP to Bridgend to give a talk on the NATO Parliamentary AssemblyI was pleased to see the event supported by pupils from the local Comprehensive Schools, as well as local organisations, businesses and constituents.

Hugh talked about the 28 NATO member countries, and how the Parliamentary Assembly worked and provided interesting information on defence spending and defence capabilities. Hugh was very engaging and following his talk there were many questions from the audience about current situations across the world that NATO was involved in.

Despite the defence cuts Madeleine and Hugh explained that the UK has the fifth largest defence budget in the world ($57.0bn) with the United States of America as the first ($600.4bn), followed by China ($112.2bn), Russia ($68.2bn) and Saudi Arabia ($59.6bn). Questions ranged from the Ebola Crisis, cyber warfare, maritime surveillance and the Russian threat, the depletion of the UK’s defence assets and the future of the armed forces. Both speakers emphasised that with Russian military airplane incursions into European and North American airspace back at cold war levels this was an important time to understand the role of NATO.

Hugh said:  It was an excellent outreach opportunity for me to speak about the work of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly to an interested audience in Bridgend.

The event was free, but generous donations were received for the Bridgend Food Bank. More events are planned with the next being on 26 February 2015 with Joan Whalley MP talking on Climate Change.

On 29th September the Work and Pensions Secretary Ian Duncan Smith, announced his plans for the next stage of the role out of Universal Credit.

The plan is for Universal Credit to be rolled out across the country to all Jobcentres and Local Authorities from
early 2015.

This will be a huge expansion in one of the government's largest and most controversial reforms. 

Universal Credit is intended to bring together 6 benefits and tax credits into 1. The new service is already being piloted in 50 Jobcentres across England, Wales and Scotland, and will be available in nearly 100 Jobcentres by Christmas.
