Youth parliament survey to find out what pupils want
WHAT facilities do young people in North Somerset value the most?
That’s the question which the district’s Youth Parliament representatives are asking in a letter to schools around the area.
The group is surveying youngsters on the area’s services, and also looking to foster an interest in local politics by staging Question Time-style debates on local issues.
The letter – written by deputy parliament member Benedikta Fones – comes at a time when youth services are facing huge cuts as part of North Somerset Council’s �47million cost-cutting drive.
It said: “We are putting together a survey to find out from young people in North Somerset which facilities and activities they would like to be accessible most, and when, where and how they would like these to be delivered.

“We also plan to hold some events which will raise the profile of political education and encourage young people in our local area to have an interest in politics and how their local authority is run.”
