Her Worship the Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Councillor Janice Charles, recently hosted a coffee morning for Vale People First

at the Art Central Gallery, King Square, Barry. It was a huge success, raising not only funds, but awareness for the group.

are the representative voice for people with a learning disability in the area, and are commissioned by the Local Authority to speak up about the services they receive, in order to improve existing and future services, to be more tailored to the person's needs.

The Mayor  was delighted to welcome such

 a dedicated team of people –and also thanked the volunteers who put such a lot of work into organizing the event, Alison Kendrick and Christine Martin.
