We brought fun and games to South Petherton Parish Council’s meeting! This was our warm-up exercise before the main event - a question-and-answer session with each Parish Councillor. This was hugely beneficial to all involved, the young people learnt a lot about the work of the Parish Councillors and in turn the Parish Councillors chatted to the young people and discovered what they think about living in South Petherton.
