Burnham-On-Sea student wins UK Youth Parliament election

A Burnham-On-Sea school student will be representing Sedgemoor and Mendip in the UK Youth Parliament.

Jodie Gregg, a Year 11 pupil at King Alfred School, has been voted to represent Sedgemoor and Mendip in the UK Youth Parliament.

This is the first time a student from the school has put themselves forward to be selected, and the first time the school has engaged in the voting process.

Jude Atkins, Area Youth Worker, told "It's been a huge achievement not just for Jodie in a personal sense, but for the school as well."

"Jodie will now begin her 12 month term of office as an MYP alongside her Deputy who was elected from The Blue School in Wells."

"At county level she will be involved in UK Youth Advisory Group and will be pro-active in helping to bring about positive change for young people in Somerset through creating a strong manifesto, lobbying, and working alongside appropriate officials."

"A big thank you goes out to everyone who got behind Jodie’s election campaign, especially all the King Alfred’s students who took the time to vote."
