Ed_questions_at_Ridgewood.jpgPolitics students had a visit from Ed.

He spoke to a group of around 80 sixth-formers at Ridgewood Academy, in Scawsby, encouraging them to use their vote and get involved in politics.

Ed also explained his own reasons for getting involved in politics and took questions.

After the visit, he said: “I believe the views and contributions of young people will become increasingly important to British politics.

“The students at Ridgewood were clearly well informed and had a keen interest in current affairs. I was delighted to have the opportunity to talk to them.

“We had an excellent discussion about the impact politics has on everyday life, particularly younger people, and the importance of being able to take part in that by voting.”

Ed asked students about the issues that were important to them. Answers included transport links, work experience and job opportunities and mental health issues.
