MILFORD Haven Town Council is holding an election for its north ward on Thursday, February 14.

The two candidates are Nathan Christopher Clarke and Eddie Davies.

Nathan Clarke is standing as a Welsh Conservative candidate, and has said his main priorities if elected would be tackling dog fouling, speeding Steynton Road, and supporting local charities and organisations.

He said bodies such as the town's Sea and Royal Marines Cadets - of which his children are members - offered young people a 'real sense of purpose and direction'.

"As your town councillor it would be my ambition to promote the success of organisations such as these", he said.

"When I talk to residents, its issues like speeding, dog fouling and bin collections that come up repeatedly," his campaign leaflet reads.

"I am campaigning for improvements to our town so we can address these issues and encourage more people to visit Milford Haven."

Eddie Davies, who is standing as a 'truly independent candidate', also lists speeding on Neyland Road and surrounding area as one of his focuses.

Like Mr Clarke, he predicts the building of new homes in Steynton - where he has lived since 1986 - will bring a lot of change to the area.

"I feel there is a great need for a local councillor to see that there are adequate facilities within our ward, especially for the obvious influx of children, for example keeping the Rath paddling pool and other facilities in Milford open," he said.

The retired refinery worker and firefighter is an active member of St Katharine's Stratford Players, an ardent rugby fan and a keen Wales supporter.

His leaflet reads: "If elected I promise to do my best to ensure that decisions made by the council will be of pertinent value and beneficial to our local community."
