Corsham Youth Council

The Corsham Youth Council was set up in 2008 by the Corsham Town Council with representatives of Corsham's 6 Primary Schools along with students from The Corsham School to advise the Council. They work on a wide range of issues including recently a survey that looked at sports facilities for young people in Corsham, compiling a time capsule not to be opened until 2065, as well as giving their feedback on a parkour area and helping with the Keep Corsham Tidy campaign. The group’s monthly meetings, during term-time, are held in the Council Chamber at the Town Hall. The Youth Councillors vote for their own Chairman, who holds the position for six months to enable as many people as possible to experience the role.  For more information, email Sharon Thomas, Head of Community Services: sthomas@corsham.gov.uk.  Watch video >>
