Kingdown School students attended a Wiltshire Council meeting to address their findings from their questionnaire.
Warminster students: Chloe Hurd, Sarah Gibson, Will Hall, Harry Orchard, Tom Chilvers and Ellis Dackombe conducted a questionnaire distributed to other students titled 'What irritates you about your town?'
The students took six areas to focus on: Environment, Commerce, Community, Leisure, Employment and Public Transport.
Warminster Town Council welcomed the student's to report on their findings with results showing that litter in Warminster, areas where young people can socialise and access to free Wifi where the main issues raised.
Warminster Town Council advised the group of students of the organisations they can join to get their voices heard including the Wiltshire Assembly for Youth and Friends of Warminster Youth Committee.
In a statement released by Kingdown School it said: "The students were unaware of the existence of some of the groups, but were interested in finding out more."
Members of Wiltshire Council who attended the local meeting congratulated the students on their presentation with Councillor Fryer saying they were a 'breath of fresh air."
