Visit from MP James Heappey in response to the Somerset Council Youth Service cuts

30th March 2019

A local Councillor, Sue Thurgood, invited MP James Heappey to visit the YMCA Mendip & South Somerset Youth Clubs in Glastonbury.

He not only accepted the invitation but also had a great time at the Youth Club taking part in the body confidence workshop that young people were doing as part of their educational activity in the club. MP Heappey volunteered to be the person that the young people could draw around and then he supported during their sharing of ideas about the topic.

After carrying out this worthwhile activity, the young people felt free to speak with MP Heappey about the benefits that the club offers them.

This meeting meant so much on both parts: young people had the chance to be heard, and MP Heappey had the opportunity to explore why YMCA Mendip & South Somerset Youth Clubs are so important to the community.

MP Heappey was kind enough to reciprocate the invitation, asking the Youth Club to visit the Houses of Parliament.
Stay tuned!
