CANDIDATES for the Isle of Wight’s Member of Youth Parliament and the Youth Council have submitted their manifestos, ready for next week’s vote.

The youngsters, aged between 11 and 21 from across the Island, have penned their policies to improve life for the Island's youth, with ideas including better fun and leisure facilities, improving bus services in West Wight, more employment and volunteering opportunities, and greater career services.

There are 14 candidates for the Member of Youth Parliament, and 28 for the youth council, with 13 candidates putting themselves forward for both. The deadline to apply was yesterday (Monday) and voting is due to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The details on how to vote will be released on Friday, and for more information on each of the candidates, and to read their individual manifestos, visit: www.iwight.com/youth-council
