Local Politicians to Meet Tamworth’s Students

Local politicians will be meeting students at Rawlett School on Thursday 8th and 15th November.

For the third year in a row, local councillors from across the political divide have been invited to question time with Year 7 pupils.

Rawlett teacher and Tamworth Borough Councillors Richard Kingstone said, “Rawlett Schools believes it is important for our students to meet with local politicians to try to understand more about the subject and to see that those making the decisions are no different to their family, friends and neighbours.”

The current Mayor of Tamworth, Cllr Tina Clements, and Fazeley, Cllr Rebecca James, along with several former Mayors, are amongst the list of councillors who will be meeting the students.

Cllr Clements said, “I attended this event last year and I am again looking forward to being questioned by the voters of the future.”

22-year-old Cllr James said, “This will be the third time I have met the students at Rawlett and, as a young councillor, I am able to show them that people of all age are actively involved in politics.”
