Friday’s constituency surgery cancelled

Unfortunately Stephen’s public drop-in surgery planned for Friday morning (December 11) at the Moorland Community Centre in Splott has had to be cancelled.

Management at the centre made the decision due to a planned protest outside the venue by anti-war campaigners.

Stephen said: “Although I have no issue with the protesters making their case, the staff at the centre were understandably not at all comfortable with a protest picket taking place outside a venue that caters specifically for older and vulnerable people. The wellbeing of the centre users must be the main consideration, and I fully understand their decision.

“Regrettably therefore, the surgery has had to be cancelled – and I sincerely apologise to any constituents who had planned to visit me there to seek assistance. They can of course contact my office to make alternative arrangements.

“I offered, in public, to meet with the protesters away from the surgery so as not to cause disruption to the Moorland centre and to those constituents who planned to attend – but the organisers did not respond.

“It’s a shame that this will now have a knock-on effect on people who might have needed urgent assistance.”
