The first of these surgeries will be held between 10am and 12pm on Saturday, October 14th, at the Tydu Community Hall, (Welfare Grounds, Tregwilym Road, Rogerstone Newport   NP10 9EQ) in Rogerstone.

Surgeries will also be held at the following locations in the coming months:

Mr Cuthbert said: “I want to hear people’s views in order to ensure the service we provide reflects the police and crime issues facing our diverse communities. Only by listening to people’s issues and concerns and by putting the needs of the individual at the heart of what we do can we seek to provide the best possible quality of life for our citizens. This is why hosting surgeries during times which are convenient to the public is vital.”
