Brussels trip for Erewash youth councillor

AN EREWASH youth councillor is in Brussels this week on a trip to the European Parliament.

Kyle Ilett, who represents Erewash, will join ten other Derbyshire County Council youth councillors on the trip.

As part of the three-day trip the youngsters will meet MEP Emma McClarkin, tour the European Parliament and visit other local sites.

Cllr Barry Lewis said: “We want young people to get involved in their communities and make the most of the chances on offer.”

“The young people in our youth council today could be political leaders and decision-makers of the future so we’re happy to support them in their cultural education.”
