A 14-year-old from Beeston has been elected as Broxtowe’s new youth mayor.
William Mee, who attends Alderman White School in Bramcote, was voted in at a recent meeting of Broxtowe Youth Voice.
He becomes youth mayor following a year as deputy youth mayor, assisting outgoing youth mayor Alfie Russell.
“I believe that young people do not get their say and I strongly believe that a society must have a young person’s point of view also,” William said.
“I also wish to gain members of Broxtowe Youth Voice and encourage people to have their say.”
William’s first official engagement as youth mayor will be at the Beeston Remembrance Parade where he will read a poem as part of the service at the War Memorial.
Eleven-year-old Faraz Hussain from Alderman White School will serve at deputy youth mayor for the year.
