Owen Ashford attended the Royal Opening of the Fifth National Assembly for Wales on Tuesday 7th June.

As an active member of Torfaen Young People’s Forum Owen was invited to attend the above mentioned event to welcome in the new Welsh Assembly. This was a great honour for those attending. Our Torfaen group had a great spot (right at the front) which meant Owen and the others were able to have a brief chat with the Queen and shake hands with Prince Charles. Not only was this an unforgettable moment for our young people but it also reinforced the importance of the connection between young people in Wales and the National Assembly.
