Getting young people into politics has really been taken to heart by Treforest Labour Party, with three youth members becoming officers and taking over major roles.
Nineteen-year-old Mark Beech, of Meadow Street, has become chair, Gemma Bennett, aged 21, of Queen Street, has become deputy chair and Jonathan Bishop, aged 25, of Cliff Terrace, has become secretary.
The team is completed with long-term resident Nora Ashman, of New Park Terrace, taking the important role of treasurer.
Secretary Jonathan Bishop said the role of the officers is to now build links with the community.
“There are many issues in Treforest that need addressing,” he said.
“But with a growing membership of small business owners, students and residents we are in a strong position to present to the Labour council what the community of Treforest wants to see happen.”
