Marlborough teenagers may find a voice
6:00pm Sunday 29th September 2013 in News
TEENAGERS may soon have more of a say in Marlborough now that a working party has been set up to start a youth council.
The idea to give young people in the town a forum for debated was mooted by mayor Guy Loosmore at the full town council meeting on Monday.
He said: “It has to be a council that works with the youth and not a council that we impose on the youth.
“It’s really about starting the ball rolling, I think it’s very, very important for the future of this town that we do this. There are various youth organisations in the town but this is about having a wider, broader youth council and it would be my wish that we could achieve something where the youth can really feel there is some engagement.”
The council voted unanimously to create the working party.
