I hosted the main stage with another Fixer at the Breakin’ Out Festival in Bailey Park in Abergavenny for 8 hours on 7th September. There were 2000 young people there and it was great to get the crowd pumped and introduce a range of acts.

This month I have taken part in a Welsh Government consultation for young people held in Ebbw Vale on 4th September. I was asked to give my feedback and opinions on a new youth work strategy for Wales.
I have also received feedback following my ‘Show Your Teeth in Town’ event at the end of August. During the event, we asked people to think about things that make them smile and tell us what makes them happy. Here are some cheerful responses:
'All the people having a laugh today.'
'People running through town in funny clothes for a good cause.'
'Someone smiling back at you when you smile at them.'
'Community projects bringing people together - like today!'
