A long standing supporter and member of the British Legion, Jane Hutt AM invited members of the Barry branch of the British Legion to a guided tour and tea at the Senedd as her guest. She welcomed the group and after the tour served tea and welsh cakes. She said it was great to meet with the British Legion in the run up to the Assembly Elections to discuss with them their thoughts on Assembly responsibilities to the Armed Forces community.
Jane has recently welcomed the launch of a new national scheme to provide free swimming for veterans and Armed Forces personnel in Wales. Free swimming for Armed Forces and veterans is the latest initiative to be launched by the Welsh Government as part of its Package of Support for the Armed Forces Community.
She said: “This is a great scheme, I like many residents in the Vale of Glamorgan believe strongly that we need to recognise the service our armed forces have given and are giving.”
