Pupils put councillors in the hot seat
PUPILS from a Tiptree school quizzed county councillors as part of local democracy week.
Thurstable School students put questions to a panel of members in the Essex County Council chamber.
Councillors present included cabinet members and party leaders, and they answered a question about youth facilities from Thurstable pupils.
Authority chairman councillor Kay Twitchen, who chaired the Question Time session, said: “The young people of Essex are our future so it is important councillors take the time to engage with them. From the feedback I’ve received they genuinely did enjoy it as much as we did.”
