Hundreds respond to youth survey
PROACTIVE teenagers campaigning for better facilities for young people in Portishead have received more than 1,000 responses to a recent survey.
Gordano School students Charlotte Waterson, aged 15, and 16-year-old Asa Galsworthy drew up the survey to invite young people to have a say on their social needs in the growing town.
They say they still have Gordano School sixth form surveys to collect and they will then provide a detailed report using the information from the surveys.
Portishead Town Council has welcomed the initiative and councillors say they will take the report seriously. They have confirmed they will consider the requirements and requests made by the young people.
Youngsters in the town have long been asking for somewhere to meet and socialise in addition to the town’s youth centre, which is closed at weekends.
