Councillor Jayne Norman
Councillor Jayne Norman moved to Llantwit Major 36 years ago. After previously working in education she spent her time bringing up her two children and started working on the family farm where they lived.
Her last post was in Llantwit Major School, where she worked for a number of years before retiring from the role as Learning Resources Centre Manager 12 years ago.
While at the school, Councillor Norman became very active in the Trades Union movement and eventually becoming Unison Woman’s’ Officer for the Vale of Glamorgan Council. This was a post she held until her retirement.
On retirement she worked part-time at the local library and was elected to Llantwit Major Town Council in 2015.
Further to this in 2017 Councillor Norman became The Mayor of Llantwit Major Town Council, and, in the same year, was elected to the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
After becoming a widowed mother of two, and a grandmother of five she also enjoys and promotes supporting local charity organisations, she is also a keen gardener as well as enjoying travel, and most types of craft work.
She hopes to continue to develop the role of Mayor to the best of her ability, during what is currently a very difficult time.
One of the points she will hope to focus on during her term of office, is the role of young people in our future as a local authority, and to ensure we get them involved in what will one day be their responsibility.
She looks forward to encouraging the Youth Cabinet and Youth Councils to take a more active part in decision making, as she says they are our future.
