"The achievements of the current Youth Cabinet include work on developing a new ‘three-in-one’ card, functioning as an identity card and offering eligible discounts on bus travel and in shops and leisure outlets."
This would be very useful to many young people, so keep looking on the Youth Cabinet website
The day will be run jointly with the Wealden Neighbourhood Policing Team, East Sussex Road Policing Team and Sussex Special Constables.
There will be a number of events throughout the day including
* Sussex Police display car showing different vehicle defects and offences.
* Seat belt slide which shows the positive effects of wearing a seatbelt at low speed.
* Beer goggles. Test your judgement and balance when under the influence of alcohol.
* Sussex Police simulator. Driving skills tested, with the chance to win a track day at Brands Hatch.
* Speed Watch demonstrations.
* Operation Crackdown. How to report antisocial driving and abandoned vehicles.
* ROSPA. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents giving accident prevention advice.
* Arcade Simulator. Test your driving skills on the latest driving simulator.
Sergeant Ruth Hammerton, from the Wealden Neighbourhood Policing team based in Heathfield says "Although the day is designed to be fun we are hoping to deliver a very serious message. In the last 3 years across Wealden there were 67 serious road traffic collisions involving 17-24 year olds. 3 of these resulted in a fatality. Our aim is to educate young drivers about the dangers of driving antisocially and help them to become safer road users".
On the day there will be a number of Special Constables assisting in the event. They will also be about to chat with anyone who is considering a role as a Sussex Special Constable. If you would like to know more about the role of a Sussex Special, pop along to the event where they will be more than happy to speak with you.
For more information on the event please contact Sgt Ruth Hammerton on 101 extension 568700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was a hugely successful day, we all worked very hard and the wonderful results are evident from the photos. Please visit the photo gallery in the media section.
We plan to go back and finish the painting once our exams are finished in June.
The film we watched was called The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which was most entertaining and was a for sure laugh.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and The Youth Council has been invited round to play carpet bowels next month.
