A new generation of role models for sport and physical activity in Pembrokeshire met recently to share ideas and listen to the inspiring stories of older ambassadors.

The Bronze Young Ambassador conference was attended by more than 80 children in years five and six.

Organised by Sport Pembrokeshire, the conference included first aid training, digital platform training and motivational and informative talks.

Rominy Colville from Sport Pembrokeshire said the Young Ambassador programme identifies young people who can act as a role model and champion for PE, school sport and physical activity.

“It’s really important to encourage children and young people to be active and give them opportunities to take part in sport and games,” she said.

“The Young Ambassadors play a hugely important role in this, and we’re really grateful for their work.”

Eleven Silver and Gold Young Ambassadors from Haverfordwest High VC School  also attended to act as mentors for the younger pupils. They included Libi Phillips and Carys Ribbon who spoke about their journeys on the Young Ambassador pathway.

Chloe Jordan from Youth Sport Trust spoke about the importance of their role to inspire, influence and lead others, while Bleddyn Gibbs (Power lifting Gold Medallist at the Special Olympics World Games) joined the event for the closing ceremony.

Rominy said they had received great feedback.

“The participants’ comments highlighted how they enjoyed taking part in different activities like boccia and they are looking forward to sharing their ideas and helping younger pupils become more active in their schools,” she said.

“Thank you to everyone who contributed to a great conference – and we’re looking forward to continuing to support the Bronze Young Ambassadors as they progress throughout the year.”
