Young Mayor of Newhaven

11th November 2016

Elections for a new Young Mayor of Newhaven were held just before half term.  Students at Seahaven Academy and UTC@harbourside voted to choose who they wanted to represent them and their views.

The winning candidate was 15 year old Sophie Lewis from UTC@harbourside and Sophie was presented with the Young Mayor’s badge by grown up Mayor, Councillor Steve Saunders at the Council meeting held on Tuesday evening, 8th November.

Sophie is keen to use social media better to share information between young people in the town and would like to create an app to help them get involved in local activities around Newhaven.

In the meantime, Sophie’s first engagement as Young Mayor will be to lay a wreath on behalf of the town council at Sunday’s Remembrance Day service at the Memorial Green.
