Nick urges Rye Partnership to reach out to young people

January 25, 2009

rye-imageNick Perry, Lib Dem Parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, attended the Annual Public Meeting of the Rye Partnership on Thursday evening.

Speaking after the meeting, chaired by Cllr Keith Glazier and attended by only a handful of people, Nick said,

“Given the current economic climate and the importance of securing the future prosperity of Rye, it is of great concern that, year on year, there seem to be fewer people interested in coming to this meeting. The Rye Partnership needs to take a long hard look and ask itself why this is.

“In particular, I noticed that there were no young people whatsoever at the meeting, and I urge the Rye Partnership to reach out to young people locally and find ways, within the structure of the organisation, to empower them to help make decisions about Rye’s future.”

During the question and answer session of the meeting Cllr Keith Glazier admitted that the Rye Partnership had only done ‘indirect’ work to engage young people in its business.
