RESIDENTS are being encouraged to do something and amazing and vote in a film that puts the focus on children and young people's services delivered by Cambridgeshire County Council.
The film is the latest in a series, which can be seen on Cambridgeshire County Council's website www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk and on YouTube, and shows the range of services that Council officers provide.
The initiative is part of the Council's Do Something Amazing campaign, which is using the Internet to encourage people to vote on June 4.
The latest film shows the work carried out by Children and Young People's Services in providing specialist help for a pupil with a visual impairment, and showcasing the work of Children's Centres.
It is designed to give a brief insight into some of the work carried out every day by the Council and how residents' votes will help shape what amazing things officers will be doing in the future.
This latest film will be followed by a series of others on the web answering residents' questions about what kind of services the Council delivers and encouraging people to do something amazing and vote on June 4.
Residents can sign up on Twitter (www.twitter.com/ccc_elections) and Facebook to get the latest updates, or text the word 'election' to 81025 to receive free reminders and information on their mobile phone.
The County Council website www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk also features an interactive map, which gives details of all the candidates standing in each seat, and the locations of polling stations.
Mark Lloyd, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "These films should give residents an insight into some of the services delivered every day by the Council for our communities, such as helping young people achieve. Your vote will help shape what amazing things the Council will be doing in the future and we want to encourage everyone to exercise their right on June 4. This is the first time the Council has used the web like this to encourage more people to vote. Please do something amazing on June 4 and vote.
