On Monday we had the opportunity to meet the new Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Councillor Christine Cave. We met in the Mayors office and discussed important youth issues such as the Welsh Baccalaureate, school funding and mental health services for young people. The Mayor had strong views about the importance of equality in pupil funding and this is something we have discussed a lot at our meetings. The Mayor who is also a psychologist discussed the importance of good mental health services for young people and we explained this was the number one issues for young people in the Vale in the Make Your Mark campaign 2018.
We would like to thank the Mayor for meeting with us and we are looking forward to attending the Mayoral civic service on 22nd September which will also be a celebration of volunteering in the Vale.
