Tourism and Post services on agenda at AM’s Amlwch meeting

In the latest of his series of open public meetings across the island, Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth invited residents to the Dinorben Arms in Amlwch to chat about issues that were important to them.

Speaking after the meeting, Rhun ap Iorwerth said:

“Thank you to everyone who came to the Dinorben Arms and contributed to our discussion on a range of local issues. We spoke, for example, of the need to do more to promote the north of Anglesey as a tourist destination. The Copper Kingdom, Mynydd Parys and Amlwch Port are all wonderful places to visit and to learn more about our industrial past, but we need to do more to attract people here.

“We also discussed issues affecting the town itself, such as the fact that Amlwch is without a Post Office and will have to wait till February of next year until post office services will be available at the new Spar. I have been pushing for the Post Office to offer a temporary mobile service in the meantime – especially over the busy Christmas period. I was pleased to be able to share with residents at the public meeting the latest response I have received from the Post Office, saying that they will review the possibility of adding Amlwch as a temporary van stop on their mobile services’ timetable. I will continue to press for this to happen.”
