Thursday 16 July 2020 meeting of the Overview and Scrutiny committee had a packed agenda starting with a presentation from Epping Forest Youth Council.
COVID-19 interrupted elections for new councillors so it was decided to appoint all candidates alongside seven existing councillors…making an unprecedented total of 29 members.
Showcasing their activities for the past year and the year ahead the Youth Council members enthusiastically outlined plans, in particular their Covid-19 video which expresses how the virus is impacting young people.
Chairman of Overview and Scrutiny Committee Councillor Mary Sartin said:
“EFYC is considered to be a huge success, growing in activity over the years and it’s clear that the current cohort has a lot to offer.”
