Did you know there are 22 local authorities in Wales? Of course, you do.
Oeddech chi’n gwybod Cymru yn cael 22 awdurdod leol? Wrth gwrs, byddwch yn gwybod.

Each of these local authorities will be responsible for enforcing the proposed Public Health Bill, especially the e-cigarette part.
Bydd pob awdurdod lleol yn gyfrifol am y Mesur Iechyd Cyhoeddus, yn enwedig yr adran ynghylch e-sigaréts.

How can you keep vaping free in Wales this week?
Sut gallwch chi gadw mae vaping rhad ac am ddim yr wythnos hon?

You can write to your local councillors using http://www.writetothem.com explaining why they should be worried about the Public Health Bill in regards to vaping.
Gallwch ysgriffennu at eich cynghorwyr lleol drwy deffnydio http://www.writetothem.com gan esbonio pam mae cynghorwyr dylai yn poeni am y Mesur Iechyd Cyhoeddus o ran vaping.

If you need inspiration, you can use the writing frame by Vapers In Power, with hints in English and Welsh.
Os oes angen ysbrydoliaeth, ydych chi’n gallu deffnyddio yr ffrâm ysgrifennu gan Vapers In Power, gydag awgrym yn Cymraeg a Saesneg.

Details here.

RE: Write to your councillor.
This is a very important step for all vapers in Wales to take. There are 2 reasons why you must do this.

1 - The Local Councils/Authorities are already strapped for cash and making money saving attempts here there and everywhere. Well more specifically, local Trading Standards officers and possibly Police Officers will not only have to inspect places like pubs/clubs for compliance but also workplaces. This increase the costs in terms of funding, time and effort for a very stupid piece of legislation. So where are they going to get the funds for all this?

2 - Most vape shops are places of work, right? They are also public spaces, right? So a legislative double whammy! If you cant vape in a vape shop or in the premises of a vaping related manufacturer, what is going to happen to those businesses. They will close down! That is just one negative with 2 consequences of loss of jobs and local economy revenue. There are many more!

There you go, 2 help points. Now get on with it Big Grin

RE: Write to your councillor.
Vapers in Power have just launched writetovape.co.uk with a page dedicated to Welsh vapers, you enter your postcode and it'll send you to a page on writetothem.com with your AM selected and a message box to contact them (bypasses a few steps on writetothem.com and streamlines things a bit).

Then do what ive done in the past when responding to an asswipe. With each new line you type/write, use the start letter to spell out something naughty..makes me feel a lot better..
