Conservative Shadow Member for Youth Participation, Cllr Nick Kilby,today called for the official meetings of the Kingston Youth Council (KYC) to be added to RBK’s official timetable of Council meetings for 2010/11.

He said “We should give the Kingston Youth Council the same status that all official committees of the Council are afforded. If we are asking the younger members of our community to take politics seriously then we need to show them that we take them seriously”.

One of the principal aims of the KYC is to enable young people, living in RBK, and aged between 13–19 to discuss current themes and issues that relevant to them.

Cllr Kilby was joined by Leader of the Conservative Group Cllr Howard Jones when they took part in the recent Youth Council Shadowing programme, which they hoped had been as beneficial to the ‘shadows’ as it had been to the Councillors.
