ANGLESEY AM Ieuan Wyn Jones' views from the Senedd.
I WAS pleased to meet with the General Manager of Hospice at Home Gwynedd and Anglesey at my office in Llangefni recently.
The charity has now been in existence for 20 years and works in partnership with the NHS to provide care at patients’ homes.
To mark their 20th birthday, they held a series of events to raise money towards the excellent work that they do, and I wish them all the best with their fundraising, both through these activities and through their shops.
With between 500 and 700 referrals a year, it is important that they are able to carry on offering this invaluable service to patients across Ynys Môn and Gwynedd.
For further information about the charity, call 01286 662772 or visit their website http://www.hospiceathomega.co.uk.
IN THE Senedd, I spoke of the importance of the tourism sector in north Wales.
It contributes £1.8 billion in income to the local economy and employs 37,000 people.
In its strategy, the North Wales Tourism Partnership has said that the priority is to improve accommodation quality, ensuring various attractions and activities of high quality.
I therefore asked the First Minster what support the government could give to improve this provision, increasing the number of jobs and strengthening the economy in the process.
The tourism sector is extremely important to north Wales, but it needs more support.
