Boast your favourite roast dinner this week AS THE NIGHTS draw in

and temperatures drop, what better way to welcome the autumn equinox than with a warming roast dinner. The end of September also

marks ‘British Roast Dinner Week’ when families can cook up a real traditional treat. Earlier this year, research

commissioned for HCC found that roast beef was the favourite meal across the UK, with 35% saying they preferred it to any other roast dinner. Lamb came second on 23% ahead of chicken on 19%, with roast pork the favourite of 8% of diners and vegetarian options scoring 7%. From a time-honoured roast

to a Sunday lunch with a twist, all the inspiration you need for the perfect roast dinner can be found on HCC’s website - – where a wealth of wonderful recipes can be searched and selected. These include roast Welsh

Beef topside with beer, shallots and roasted vegetables, Welsh Beef with cranberry and walnut stuffing, and spiced roast leg of Welsh Lamb. New season Welsh Lamb is

widely available at this time of year and the range of cuts can be enjoyed in a variety of different dishes. Lamb shoulder is a delicious cut for a classic roast dinner - it’s full of flavour and has lots of nutrients such as iron. It’s very easy to cook and is also less expensive than many other cuts. To make the most of our iconic

native produce, try a delicious Welsh Lamb shoulder with leeks and stuffing.

All you need is: 1Kg (2.2lb) lean Welsh Lamb shoulder joint, boned and rolled 225g (8oz) lean minced Welsh

4-5, 180°C, 350°F. Take a lean boned and rolled shoulder joint, remove strings and flatten out the joint. To make the stuffing, mix

together all stuffing ingredients and place in a sausage shape in the centre of the joint, along with the leeks and rosemary. Roll up and secure with string. Any extra stuffing can be made into balls and cooked around the joint - add these to the joint 20-30 minutes before the end of cooking. Weigh the joint when stuffed

and calculate the cooking time; 25 minutes per 445g/0.5kg plus an extra 25 minutes. Place on a rack in a roasting tin and open roast in preheated oven for the calculated cooking time. Serve with steamed leeks, roasted new potatoes and mint jelly.

Government have made clear that the current subsidy regime will continue until 2020, they must act speedily in drawing up their route map. “Farms are businesses and, like

any business, they need to invest and plan for the future. The 2020 date the Government have provided hardly provides an opportunity for lengthy planning. “The economic fabric of rural

Wales is intrinsically linked to our farms and their economic well-being must be at the forefront of the minds of the Government Ministers responsible for our Brexit negotiations. “The threat to a family farm can

have a much wider impact on rural infrastructure, whether that be village

schools, village shops, post offices, or rural bus routes. Rural areas cannot be ignored and will be an increasingly important part of our country’s future post-Brexit. It is vital that the Government recognise this and provide the assurance that our rural communities desperately need.”

Ceredigion AM discusses past and future of Postal Service ELIN JONES, Plaid Cymru

AM for Ceredigion, attended an anniversary event this week celebrating 500 years of the Royal Mail. The event in the National

Assembly allowed AMs to discuss the milestone anniversary. The event came in a week of

postal events for Ceredigion’s AM, as she also met with Post Office officials to discuss plans for their branch on Aberystwyth’s Great Darkgate Street. Elin Jones said: “I know that

there has been a lot of concern regarding the future of the post service in Aberystwyth, and I raised these issues directly with the Post Office this week. “I raised my concerns about

maintaining the wide range of services that are currently available to people in Aberystwyth, as well as my concerns about access into the branch and the casualisation of the

workforce if the move does go ahead. “I was glad to hear that the Post

Office is taking all of these matters seriously, and is now undertaking a review of all the responses to the

consultation. “Although, I remain unconvinced

that the service will be improved by moving from their current premises on Great Darkgate Street.”

always been one of the best universities for student experience and satisfaction, something that I found during my time studying there. “I am glad to see that the hard

work of staff at the university has paid off and that Aberystwyth is back to being recognised as one of the best universities to study at and one of the best places to live as a student in the country. “My congratulations to all of those
