HAILSHAM’S Youth Mayor who was elected in May (2012) will be allocated £250 by the town authority for her expenses.

The money set aside for use by Youth Mayor Chelsie McIntosh, a pupil at Hailsham Community College, will come from the Contingency Fund after councillors agreed to the proposal  at a Hailsham Town Council meeting at the end of June.

Chelsie’s role involves spreading a positive message about the impact young people can make in the parish and how the input of younger folk can influence some of the key decisions affecting everyone in the town.
