Teens on the Fylde coast are being asked to help shape discussions by the country’s Youth Parliament.

Teen representatives from across the country will visit the House of Commons to share the views of their peers in a bid to help shape national policies. Now they want others to help them decide on what to discuss.

North Shore teen Liam Richardson is Blackpool’s representative in the Youth Parliament. The 15-year-old Unity Academy pupil hopes to use his position to engage his peers in community work and give the resort a voice nationally.

Any young person can have their say by joining the ballot, called Make Your Mark, which runs until October 10.

Teens will be asked what issues matter most to them, and answers will help to determine what is debated by the Youth Parliament at the session in the House of Commons on November 14. To find out more, visit: www.ukyouthparliament.org.uk
