Primary school children star in local democracy film

I think it is really important we teach our young people about how vital decisions are made for the county and how important it is to vote.

Last week pupils from a Lichfield primary school visited our County Buildings in Stafford where they were given the task of deciding how to spend thousands of pounds of public money.

Twenty five children decided in groups how they would spend a budget of £100,000 of taxpayers’ money across all public services. Each group then had to explain their decision to classmates. And they had the added pressure of being under the spotlight of a film crew for the county council’s SCCTV section of its website. See how they got on by watching the film below.
