Lucas Brown age 13 years was elected Youth Mayor for the coming year 2016/2017. Lucas attends Garstang Community Academy and has been a very active member of the youth council for the past couple of years. He has taken over from youth councillor Myles Sutcliffe - who has had a tremendous year as youth mayor. He has raised nearly £500 for the A.D.A.M. appeal, and this money will see the installation of a defibrillator at the top end of High Street (placing yet to be confirmed) Well done to Myles and good luck to Lucas, whose charity will be Cancer help (Kids).
