Youth Council Update


(Document 18/1089)

This last meeting of the year took the form of a planning, brainstorming and reflection session – with Youth Council members being asked to comment on issues including the format of the Youth Council going forward, such as frequency of meetings and the approach for the coming year – including the suggestion of having a Youth Week in May each year.


Mayor Hazlehurst presented Mayoral reference letters and a small gift to each of the Youth Council members and wished them well for their upcoming exams and for the future.  Both the Mayor and Councillor Dixon acknowledged the energy and vision of the members and the work they had undertaken during the year, together with the contribution they had made to giving a voice to young people in the district.



Ella Hoogerbrug/Cameron Young

            That the report of the Youth Co-ordinator tilted “Youth Council Update” dated 7 November 2018 be received.






The meeting closed at 5.00pm
