Speed dating with a difference

Young people in Gloucestershire will get the chance to try speed dating with a difference tomorrow (Wednesday 29th November) when they meet up with County Councillors and senior council staff.

The event at Grosvenor Hall in Cheltenham is a chance for young people to exchange ideas and opinions informally with some of the county's decision-makers.

Between 15 and 20 young people will have two minutes to talk to an adult, including Peter Bungard, Gloucestershire County Council Chief Executive, and Cllr Alan Pearce, Cabinet Member for Young People, before moving on. Topics of conversation have been chosen by the young people themselves and include transport, mental health and emotional well being, sexual health and youth participation.

The event takes place between 6.30 and 9pm at Grosvenor Hall, Cheltenham.

The event has been organised by Gloucestershire County Council Youth Service's Hear by Right group, which gives young people the chance to get actively involved with the council's Children and Young People's Directorate.
