Cai’s great political opportunity

10 days! It’s March 19 and we’re 10 days away from a significant historical day, March 29 2019 – the day we ‘leave’ the EU.  Who knows what will have happened by the time you read this! Whatever your opinion about the current political situation, it’s good to see that the next generation are keen to be part of the new crop of politicians, thanks to the Welsh Youth Parliament.

The Welsh Youth Parliament is an elected body of young people aged between 11 and 18. Over 460 candidates stood for election and were then chosen by their peers in an online election. Of the sixty members who were elected, forty represent the constituencies of Wales. Twenty more have been elected from partner organisations to reflect the make-up of Wales and to ensure the representation of diverse groups of young people.

Interest, passion, determination and enthusiasm

Writing this column makes me realise just how quickly a month goes by! This month has been slightly more unusual though as I lacked some inspiration about the subject of the column.

However, by being part of the union’s Business Conference last month, I gained some inspiration. As staff, our vision is "The Union: United - as One" which ultimately leads to the union's vision of "Creating thriving, sustainable family farms in Wales”. The family farm is at the heart of the FUW and is an important and vital part of our wider communities.

So, the subject of this month’s Cornel Clecs was right under my nose so to speak - the family farm! The official definition of a family farm is: “A farm that is owned and operated by a family, especially one that has been handed down from one generation to another”.
