New blood on youth committee
SOME new faces have been added to Mansfield’s youth committee as it begins its work for the year.
One of the newly appointed committee members is Catriona Wilson.
Ms Wilson is well known in the community through her involvement with Mansfield Armchair Cinema, but she has also been very busy with Mansfield’s young people.
She has been an active supporter of the work of the FReeZA committee, working with the committee on the youth film festival and the Phruntsyde annual skate and BMX competition.
Through her own children, Ms Wilson also has strong involvement with the local schools, at both primary and secondary levels.
“I see the main role of the youth committee as keeping young people active and involved in their community,” Ms Wilson said.
“As a former school teacher, I am looking forward to working with young people again and helping out with their projects.
“I am particularly looking forward to being involved with the E-Cafe, which I see as a great social outlet and sanctuary for the kids,” she added.
Other new faces on the committee will include young people themselves, as old student members move on to work and tertiary studies.
The young people of Mansfield can be thankful that so many are happy to work on their behalf.
