Five new members have been welcomed on to the Stratford Youth Council, attending their first meeting last week.

At the meeting, attended by many of the Stratford District councillors and families of the Youth Council, District Mayor Neil Volzke led the swearing-in ceremony, in which each youth councillor read out an oath and signed the document.

The new councillors are Rebekah Vogt, Joshua Sheed, Izaak Trueman, Storm Savage and Melissa Coupe; and one trainee, Izac White, who is 12.

One councillor, Logan Clarke, was officially farewelled and thanked for his years as a member. He will remain involved as a mentor for the rest of the year.

The junior council would be continuing to provide input on upgrading the skate park and the district's playgrounds, projects started by the previous council, community development officer Sarah Hamilton said. She facilitates the youth council as part of her role.

Council members would also be organising events, including four "on the bus" trips, with the first likely to be held in September.

The council members are: Savarna Pease (chairwoman), Jamie Chapman, Melissa Coupe, Katelyn Edser, Christopher James, Samme-Sara Marriner, Caleb Patterson, Kylie Petch, Storm Savage, Joshua Sheed, Rachel Sutton, Izaac Trueman, Antony Vogt and Rebekah Vogt.
