Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council have this week begun work experience with a group of lower sixth form students.
The council have begun work experience with a group of Anglo European students in response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
The council has offered the students the chance to learn more about the roles that local government play in the community and how it impacts them.
Cllr Winter has tasked the students with creating an accessibility audit for our High Street businesses.
At the end of the week the students will make a presentation of their findings to teaching staff and some of our councillors.
