Holly said: “I’m excited to celebrate the achievements of young people whilst I’m Youth Mayor. It’s so important that the youth are recognised for their awesomeness.”
Malachi added: “I would like to thank everybody who has voted for me and I look forward to serving Bassetlaw as Deputy Youth Mayor for 2021-2022.”
