Essex: Deadline looms for youth assembly nominations

Children and teenagers only have a few more days to register their interest in standing in this year’s Young Essex Assembly (YEA) elections.
The YEA is an elected body of 75 young people aged between 11 and 19.
Members campaign on issues such as reduced transport fares, anti-bullying, recycling and raising cultural awareness.
They serve for two years before new candidates are given the opportunity to stand in local elections. Deadline for signing up is October 31.
Elections will take place in December. Call 01206 762923 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Young Essex Assembly Facebook Page.
