Annual meeting for Carmarthenshire Youth Council
Young people across Carmarthenshire are invited to the Annual General Meeting of the Youth Council later this month.
The event will take place in the Council Chamber at County Hall, Carmarthen, on Wednesday, April 29, from 5.30pm.
It will include a look back at the work of the Carmarthenshire Youth Council (CYC) over the past year, and their plans for the future.
County Council officers will attend to give feedback from the authority’s budget consultation, which the CYC contributed to by giving their views.
Youngsters aged between 11 and 25 are also encouraged to join the CYC, new members will be welcomed at a meeting at 7pm following the AGM.
Brittany Alsop-Bingham, aged 17, of Garnant, said: “We want to promote the work we do, we feel it is important that people know about us and how we help the community.
“At the meeting we will be saying goodbye to three committed members who are leaving for new experiences so we will be looking for new members, if anyone is interested or if you would like to find out more about our work then please join us and come along to the meeting.
“At the start of joining the youth council I didn’t quite know what to expect but it’s been a good opportunity to get involved.”
The council’s Youth Participation Officer Sarah Powell said: “I’ve been so proud to work with the young people over the last year as they have been so committed and enthusiastic in making sure that young people have a voice in Carmarthenshire.”
