Council Elections

On Thursday 4th May there will be elections for both Cardiff Council and the R&M Community Council.  To prevent this site being used for political purposes we have been advised to implement a period of ‘purdah’ from 27th March until after the election.  In this period we will not allow (on the Forum or elsewhere) any reference to election sensitive material.
