Hello! My name is Tilly Mitchell. I am 12 years old and I am a member of the Pocklington Youth Council.
The Council was set up by the town council to give young people in Pocklington a say in what goes on in their area.
We meet once a month to discuss issues affecting the youth of Pocklington and aim to give teenagers a voice.
Recent agenda items have been about updating the town council website and the development of a youth cafe.
