A GROUP of young carers were treated to tea with the Mayor in recognition of the vital work they do.

The Bournemouth youngsters met with Mayor of Bournemouth Cllr Rod Cooper and his wife Elaine in the Mayor’s Parlour at the Town Hall.

Cllr Chris Wakefield, the council’s carers’ champion, was also there. He recently raised more than £500 by sky-diving from 15,000 feet and intends to use the money to enable the youngsters to have a day out at a local theme park.

Maybe it was still happy hour in The Print Room but why couldn't the Echo cubs give us some examples 'of the vital work they do' and give these children some real, meaningful recognition

Probably because the council's PR team had to twist the arm of the Echo to even get them to turn up. He comes in for criticism often, but well done Cllr Wakefield for his efforts. The sad thing is is that the efforts of these youngsters probably saves the council and taxpayers thousands of pounds, so nothing much will get done about it
