Principles met

Annually, Llanelli Town Council carries out a Citizenship and Democracy project called ‘Meet the Mayor’. The project involves inviting all Town Council area primary schools (8) to visit the Council Chamber to ‘Meet the Mayor’ and have a session based on the school curriculum, democracy, voting history, citizenship, the importance of partnership working within the Community along with the young person’s place in the democratic process.  The project is carried out in partnership with Llanelli Community Partnership Volunteers who support the school sessions.

The sessions are targeted at Years 5 and 6 in order to meet the curriculum provision on citizenship and to try to ensure that all primary school pupils have an opportunity to visit during their time in Primary School prior to progressing to Secondary School.

The sessions provide an opportunity for the young people to visit the Council Chamber, to meet the Mayoral Team, ask questions about the work of the Mayor and Councillors and to understand the role of the Council and the services provided across Llanelli.
