It is a tremendous achievement for a Year 7 pupil to be leading a youth council who represent the views of 11 to 18 years olds in the town. However, this is a testimony to a pupil whose intelligence, awareness of society and public affairs, and ability to articulate her views go beyond her modest years. This recognition is thoroughly deserved.
The Blackpool Young People’s Council meet monthly at the town hall and discuss issues for Nicole to represent at the regional and national youth parliament meetings as well as acting on detail from the regional and national agendas.
Anyone who is 11 to 18 years old is eligible to attend the youth council meetings. More information can be gained by clicking this hyperlink http://www.ukyp.co.uk
