What a fantastic day in Bridgend Town Centre!
It was an absolute privilege to welcome Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party to Bridgend, later joined by Mark Drakeford, our First Minister.
We visited so many wonderful bridgend-run businesses in town, as well as being able to introduce Keir and Mark to the wonderful staff and volunteers of The Bridge Mentoring Plus Scheme at their centre “The Zone” in the heart of Bridgend Town Centre.
The Bridge Mentoring Plus Scheme do wonderful work mentoring young people throughout the borough, also running a food distribution service to all who need it three days per week. They’re an invaluable service to the Bridgend Borough and we are forever indebted to them.
It was also a lovely opportunity to chat to so many wonderful members of the public!
Thank you to everyone we met for, as always, being so welcoming and kind 👍
