The youngest representative of Llantwit Fardre Community Council was sworn-in this week. And the 23-year-old hopes to follow in the footsteps of his family who worked tirelessly in the public service.
Jonathan Bishop of Heol-y-Parc, Efail Isaf, was sworn-in as a Community Councillor for Llantwit Fardre last Wednesday (April 23).
A Freeman of Llantrisant, Coun Bishop hopes to follow in the footsteps of his ancestor, Coun Ivor Jacob, who was chairman of Llantrisant Town Council in 1947, by making a worthwhile contribution to his community.
â€œI feel honoured to have been given the chance to represent my community and take an active role in helping to change it for the better. This next year looks to be exciting and challenging, and Iâ€™m looking forward to playing my part in making it a successful one.â€
Chairman of Llantwit Fardre Community Council, Coun John Worth said: â€œJonathan Brings with him a lot of enthusiasm and commitment and we welcome the opportunity of working with him over the coming year to continue to make Llantwit Fardre a community to be proud ofâ€.
