WHAT IS THE YOUTH COUNCIL?
The Youth Council is a group of young people aged 12-18 who attend meetings on a regular basis and volunteer at council events.
We aim to help make events more appealing to everyone in the community, especially young people.
WHAT WE DO?
Every two weeks we attend meetings on Fridays after school, 4-6pm.
At these meetings we discuss upcoming events, past events, our budget, and consult on events that will affect young people in the community. We regularly volunteer at council community events doing things such as glitter tattoos, selling merchandise, planting flowers, helping children with activities, hosting a bungee run, and many other things.
As well as helping out at existing town wide events we also create, plan, prepare and deliver new exciting community experiences such as our well attended graffiti art project.
