The Chairman of Pembrokeshire County Council would like to be a fireman if he wasn’t the Chairman, the children at Coastlands CP School discovered in their trip to County Hall today (Thursday). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cllr Wynne Evans was grilled by members of the School Council in the Council Chamber as part of their tour of the building. Among their other questions were ‘what sort of things do you do in your meetings?’, ‘do you get free food?’ and ‘do you earn a lot of money?’ Cllr Evans praised their queries, saying they were very polite and varied. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The pupils also had a presentation from Jeremy Trew from Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, and toured various locations in County Hall including the contact centre, the chamber and the members’ room. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Headteacher Jeremy Evans said: “The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their visit to County Hall. They enjoyed sitting in the council chamber and firing questions at Cllr Evans. It was a real eye opener for the children to see how the council run their meetings. A big thank you to Councillor Reg Owens for arranging this experience for our children.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
