Youth Mayor and Deputy Mayor Announced

This week Megan Sylvester, from Shoeburyness High School and Chris Copley from Westcliff High School for Boys were named as Youth Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

I always like to keep an eye out on the work that Southend Youth Council do. Being closely involved as the borough's Youth Champion in my early years of being a councillor ensured this.

During the election process for the Youth Mayor, I was pleased and pleasantly surprised to hear at last week's Shoebury Debate that Shoeburyness High School had the highest turnout. I think it is fantastic that young people in Shoebury are engaged in the political process and wish Megan and Chris every success in their roles.
