Kirkburton Parish Council - Helping give young people a voice

At the last Parish Council Elections one of the issues we raised as something we would wanted to progress was to give a greater focus on services for young people. The Parish Council has been fortunate to have such good champions as Cllrs Suzanne Triggs and Ian Lumb who have worked closely with young people around the Parish helping them gain the confidence to successfully argue for a new Skateboard Park facilities in Skelmanthorpe and to seek a Youth Shelter in Shelley.  Talking to the young people you can see it has been a very positive and literally empowering experience for them and they should be very proud of what they have achieved. We've got to see how we can build on this success.
