Role of Monmouthshire’s young people recognised
Monmouthshire’s Chairman, Councillor John Prosser has acknowledged the contribution made towards community activities by the county’s young people.
At an event in Monmouth’s Shire Hall on 15th April he awarded recognition certificates to representatives and individuals from the area’s youth organisations.
Among these were members of the Engage to Change Youth Council - young people instrumental in ensuring participation and engagement with their counterparts across the county, participants in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, members of inclusive volunteers running provision for young people with learning and physical difficulties, youth club volunteers assisting the running of youth clubs, and three performers from the Gwent Music Support Service. Councillor Prosser also welcomed and recognised members of the Air Training Corps, Young Firefighters, Police Cadets, Sea Cadets, St John’s Ambulance and Army Cadets who have assisted him at council meetings and commemoration events during his year of office.
Cllr Prosser said: “I would like to thank all who engage in youth activities and give of their time freely. I have issued recognition certificates to a few who have done a little more than normally expected. I am sure there are many others who deserve such accolades and it is fitting to give a pat on the back when possible and say well done!”
