Today I attended a Recognition of Achievement awards ceremony at County and Walton Children’s Centre run by Sue Culkin. They provide whole programmes of activities for parents, carers and their children; they also offer advice and support for expectant parents.

The certificates were present by Lord Mayor Roz Gladdens, her consort and myself. I really enjoyed the morning and the celebration of the local community’s hard work and achievement. It involved courses to teach English and cookery classes that show how to eat healthily and on a budget. The organisation, funded by Liverpool City Council, centre around going out to meet families in the community and offering them support in various different ways.

I saw first-hand the positive impact and service that they offer to local people and today really was a credit to all their hard work and shows how valuable and worthwhile our local services are.

Eva_YLM_2017Today, I attended my first event as Young Lord Mayor of Liverpool. It was the Clapperboard Film Awards centred on rewarding the success of young people’s creativity and ability in the making of short films; it allowed me to meet many people in the local community and hear of many success stories as well as meeting some of my all-time favourite actors and actresses!

I was lucky enough to meet Liverpool born Alison Steadman OBE, most famous for her roles as ‘Pam’ in Gavin and Stacey and ‘Beverly’ in Abigail’s Party. It was a pleasure to meet her. As well as this, I also met Ricky Tomlinson who is best known for playing ‘Jim’ in The Royle Family and was also born and raised in Liverpool.

After the reception of the evening, we went through to a theatre and watched all the brilliant short films put together by people in the local community and then watched the awards get presented by Neil Fitzmaurice (Peep Show and Mount Pleasant), Ricky Tomlinson, and Alison Steadman. Other celebrities supporting the event included famous Liverpool actress Pauline Daniels, Tina Malone from Shameless and Dean Sullivan of Brookside as well as stars from Hollyoaks. I really enjoyed the evening and look forward to the further experiences this amazing opportunity will give me!
