Gryphon School youth politician hopes for another term
PUPILS at Gryphon School in Sherborne turned out in force to vote in the UK Youth Parliament elections.
Polling stations were open at schools across Dorset as pupils voted for three MYPs and three deputies.
MYP Natasha Glendening, 16, the school's candidate, has been campaigning for re-election. She wants to get the voice of young people heard in the county, and also to see better transport links and more international exchanges.
