Issues that are important to young people were discussed at Cromwell Community College which hosted the Fenland Youth Council meeting.
The council meets every two months to discuss important matters for youngsters in Fenland.
Questions were put to the Deputy Chief Commissioner of Police Andy Cole and they were asked for their views as part of the Fenland District Council’s consultation on corporate plans.
The young people were asked for their ideas on how to prioritise different services and to allocate funds and suggest where cuts might be made.
Youth District Council grant applications were considered and £1,300 funds were allocated to support projects for young people in Fenland. The two chosen were Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets and Centre 33 which offers support and counselling for young people.
