The Junior Council held its first meeting in January 2007 and meets about five times per year. Junior Councillors are aged 9 – 11 years old and there are six representatives from each of Harvey Road, Little Green and Yorke Mead Schools making a total of 18 Junior Councillors in all. The Junior Council is a place for them to discuss issues that concern the children of Croxley Green and then they try and do something about it.
A litter-pick in Croxley Woods was the first venture, which was backed up by anti-litter posters. There has also been campaigns about the problems of dog mess and graffiti, again backed up by posters. Another concern of the Junior Councillors is road safety and the children have produced ‘The Road Safety Charter’ to remind adults about their driving and parking, particularly outside the schools.
For the first time this year (2009), the Junior Councillors had a section of the Parish Council’s stall at the Revels where they held a successful ‘treasure map’ competition. All proceeds from this competition will be put towards the new play area at Barton Way recreation ground.
