Youth Forum Meeting: Wednesday 17th May 2017
Also, through the Forum, we got involved with a Fairtrade event at Level 2. This was a fun event aimed at getting more people to buy Fairtrade products. Kai, Erika, Mrs Stockdale and two other pupils from Year 6, Connor and Kayleigh, performed a sketch where Mr Tea and a tea farmer showed a family the benefits of buying Fairtrade. The Fairtrade organiser liked our play so much that they want to film it for their website!
The Town Council gives the Youth Forum a budget of £2,000 to spend as they wish. Last year the children voted to fund the skating rink in the town centre and this year they are putting the money towards a free outdoor cinema to be held at the events area near the leisure centre on Saturday 29th July. This is a new venture which young people helped to provide – well done Youth Forum!
