A DISTRICT councillor met his match when he was interviewed by students on housing options in North Herts.
Cllr Tom Brindley, North Herts District Council’s portfolio holder for planning and enterprise, was interviewed by Year 8 students from The Knights Templar School in Baldock.
Student Ben Summer asked the questions, while fellow pupils Sam Collins and Sam Prior filmed. They were helped by sixth former Joel Speed for KTS Newscast, the school’s news programme.
The interview formed part of BBC initiative School Report, which encourages schools to produce videos, news reports or radio reports to be broadcast on an online channel.
Cllr Brindley answered questions about the council’s consultation on future housing options for the district and spoke about the possible implications for North Herts, Baldock and the school.
Afterwards, he said: “I was very pleased to be invited to discuss the consultation. It is great to see young people get involved and take the opportunity to ask questions and give their views on the housing options, an issue that will affect future generations in North Herts.”
The interview will be available via a link on the school’s website at www.ktemplar.herts.sch.uk or at www.vimeo.com/ktsnewscast
