Youth summit to debate proposals
YOUNG people are to come together to help shape the future of facilities and services in the town.
The Youth Summit will take place at Macclesfield Town Hall on Thursday, March 30 from 3pm-5pm.
Run by Macclesfield Town Council it aims to empower 16 to 21-yearolds by asking them to discuss issues that are important to them and come up with a proposal which will be debated at a future council meeting.
During the weeks before the event, councillors Neil Puttick and Adam Schofield, along with the town clerk Pete Turner, will be visiting school councils and sixth forms across Macclesfield to explain the role of councillors and the Town Council.
They will also run an interactive activity designed to demonstrate the importance of reaching a decision following difference of opinion.
If you would like representatives from Macclesfield Town Council to visit your school, or you would like more information on attending the Youth Summit as part of a school or a community group, contact community engagement officer Helena Gowler on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01625 374142.
