Published

on

FAMILY and Friends of Billy Miller are raising funds to provide a memorial to the young man.

The family hopes to raise enough funds to place a plaque or bench somewhere in the vicinity of Tenby, where Billy was last seen, giving them a place to visit and provide some comfort.

Speaking with The Herald, Mr Miller’s brother, Andrew said: “Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Billy will know what a kind, funny and loving boy that he was. He definitely was the best of the best.

“We as a family, would just like to say we are overwhelmed by the amount of support we have had during this difficult time. To everyone who shared the posts, helped search for him, or simply just been there for us, we cannot thank you enough.

“Life definitely won’t be the same without his cheeky smile & one liners!

“Your family and friends will always love and miss you.”

Anyone who wishes to donate to the gofundme page can do so on https://gf.me/u/ybjdb3

The family are also asking for donations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, with sister Rhea, saying “They were the ones that brought Billy Home! Love you all from the bottom of my heart.

The RNLI is a charity that saves lives at sea, all crew are volunteers and rely solely on donations to provide their life saving service. The fund has already raised £599 in a few short days for the charity.

Anyone who wishes to donate to the cause can do so by visiting Rhea Miller’s Facebook page and donate through her public post.

Crime Commissioner continues to secure funding for organisations that support victims of domestic and sexual violence

Published

on

THE POLICE and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed-Powys Police is again making the offer for organisations that support victims of domestic and sexual abuse to bid for additional funds.

Funding was made available last year, in light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on organisations supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence.

It was part of a £76 million package of support made available by the UK Government.

Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said: “Thanks to this additional funding, we can ensure that victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence in Dyfed-Powys can access specialist services for support, at a time when they are needed the most.

“Unfortunately, we have seen a rise in domestic violence during the pandemic and victims need help now more than ever and I am grateful for the work of all the service providers across the Force area that help these men, women and families who are most in need.

“I want to reassure anyone who is in an abusive situation or relationship that you do not need to suffer in silence, and I urge anyone to report abuse to the Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.

“This funding is open both to providers whom I currently commission and those that I do not currently fund. However, unlike the extraordinary Covid-19 funding provided in 2020/21, organisations do not need to be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise to be eligible for this funding. They must, however, provide support services which have the purpose of helping victims of sexual violence or domestic abuse cope with the impacts of crime and, as far as possible, recover from the harm they have experienced. We would also encourage applications from small specialist organisations that support groups with protected characteristics.

“If you wish to submit a request for this funding, further guidance is available on my website, and can be requested via the office e-mail address.”

Closing date for submissions is close of play on Friday, March 12, 2021.

Covid alert level lowered for whole of UK

Published

on

THE COVID alert level for all four nations of the United Kingdom has been lowered to alert level 4.

The decision comes following advice from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and in light of the most recent data.

In recent weeks, the R-rate and the number of covid cases has been on the decline.

Chief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Frank Atherton said: “Following advice from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and in the light of the most recent data, the four UK Chief Medical Officers and NHS England National Medical Director agree that the UK alert level should move from level 5 to level 4 in all four nations.

“The health services across the four nations remain under significant pressure with a high number of patients in hospital, however thanks to the efforts of public we are now seeing numbers consistently declining, and the threat of the NHS and other health services being overwhelmed within 21 days has receded.

“We should be under no illusions – transmission rates, hospital pressures and deaths are still very high. In time, the vaccines will have a major impact and we encourage everyone to get vaccinated when they receive the offer. However for the time being it is really important that we all – vaccinated or not – remain vigilant and continue to follow the guidelines.

“We know how difficult the situation has been and remains to be for healthcare workers, we thank them for their immense effort, skill and professionalism throughout the pandemic.”

Under the Welsh Government’s Alert level 4 restrictions, schools and colleges, places of worship, community centres, playgrounds and public parks are among those that can be opened.

Theatres, entertainment venues, leisure facilities and outdoor visitors attractions are among the places that must remain close while the country is in Alert Level 4.
