Maybe it says more about my age, but I remember as a young reporter sitting in council chambers listening to aged councillors debating local issues. Now, they're younger [not all younger than me, thankfully] and online and writing their own blogs to get across their messages and fighting the corner for their community.

Among them are Ruabon Labour Councillor Nick Colbourne, his Gwersyllt colleague Ted George, Paul Blackwell who represents Plas Madoc and even Chirk Labour Party.

Yes, I know, they're politicians with an axe to grind but whatever your politics they have our local communities at heart and that's what counts at the end of the day.

Let me know of others in Wrexham, Flintshire & Denbighshire as I can only find blogs relating to Labour Party members.
