REGIONAL AM Suzy Davies is backing the Yule Love Bridgend campaign to encourage people to spend at least a tenner on Christmas presents from traders in the town.

Welsh Conservative Mrs Davies has previously supported this campaign by independent businesses and urged others to do the same.

She said: “It is very easy to go to an out-of-town retail centre where the big name stores are located. We are all short of time these days so it is very tempting. Even so, some of the unique and unusual gifts I’ve bought in the town centre have been the most popular pressies under the Davies Christmas tree these last couple of years. With Small Business Saturday coming up as well, this is a very timely reminder that Yule Love Bridgend. “
