YOUNG people from a village youth club got to discuss the matters which affect them with their local authorities.

Will Land, and David Margetts, from the RealiZe Youth Club in Kilsby went along to the Area Shadow Board meeting on Monday night at Daventry District Council’s offices.

Area shadow board meetings are held across the county so young people can discuss the issues which affect them with their local council and other bodies.

Will said: “We spoke with a police inspector about our relationships with PCSOs and then with council officers about our schools.

“Overall I thought it went very well and made me more aware about the things I need to know in my community.”

RealiZe’s senior youth officer Shailen Popat said: “Kilsby is very lucky to have such good ambassadors like Will and David who gave their spare time to help the village have the best services.”
