We had a good live chat today in Dumfries and Galloway, with Cllr Sean Marshall showing how it should be done, asking young people questions and getting them talking. They got very enthusiastic, telling him about what they wanted to see in their area. So enthusiastic that Sean was deluged!
It can be hard work for a councillor, when lots of students are all asking questions at once and I don’t think Cllr Marshall realised how well he was doing. When it settled down he asked, ‘Are they all gone now? – it feels like I just got hit by a tornado!’
