Efan Rhys Fairclough
MY KEY ISSUES ARE:
Opportunities to achieve our best
Free gyms and pools
Plastic-free Wales and better transport
I’ve always lived in Pontypridd. I love it and want it to be a happier, energetic and exciting area for young people.
Pontypridd should be a place where we can achieve our best and have the same opportunities as people from more prosperous places.
We need more facilities which allow us to thrive - challenging us and keeping our minds and bodies healthy. Young people should have free access to local public gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools. Our schools also need more counselling and mindfulness resources - anyone can struggle with mental health problems at any time.
Saving our planet from destruction has been left to our generation. We need to take responsibility. We should create a Wales which is free from single-use plastics and we must improve bus, train and cycle routes.
I will also work to protect and promote the Welsh language and the unique culture and heritage of Pontypridd.
You can trust me to be a strong voice for the young people of Pontypridd. I’ve done work experience in Parliament, I’m on my school council and I’m a member of the RCT youth forum. I’m passionate about fairness and equality. I will make sure that our voices matter.
