Queen's School student Amy Herman (right) has been named the first chairman of Fenland Youth District Council.

Amy, 15, was elected from six candidates at Wednesday's first proper meeting of the youth council after they all presented themselves to fellow councillors before a vote took place.

Amy said: "I am looking to getting to know everyone on the council and getting the younger generation's voices heard."

Her vice-chairman will be 15-year-old Emily Allington, from Neale-Wade Community

College, March, who said: "I really want to help improve Fenland and make it happen for young people."

The meeting, held in Fenland Hall's council chamber, saw youth members talking about Local Democracy Week, from October 16-20. They also moved to be involved with a questionnaire about sports facilities for younger people across Fenland.
