Welsh Labour hopes to use its conference this weekend to get across a message that it's delivering in local government after regaining control of several Welsh councils in 2012. But the party knows that local elections are often influenced by wider issues and that it will struggle in May to match its performance five years ago.
Carwyn Jones is expected to try to shift the debate from Labour's splits over Jeremy Corbyn's handling of Brexit and highlight Welsh Labour's record in power, both in local government and in Cardiff Bay. The First Minister says he wants to address voters' concerns.
The conference will be addressed by both Carwyn Jones and Jeremy Corbyn and it will be the first major political gathering since the terrorist attack on Westminster.
