Pupils at Sir William Stanier Community School have met Crewe and Nantwich MP Edward Timpson to share with him their ideas of how to re-develop Crewe town centre.
They also discussed their views on plans to move Crewe Station to Basford Sidlings, following his tour of the school and a look at plans for the new school building to replace Coppenhall and Victoria high schools.
Mr Timpson said he thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Year 8 pupils' ideas.
"It was great to see how young people are taking an active interest in the re-development of their town – something that should definitely be encouraged."
He also congratulated them on raising £300 for the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).
A school spokeswoman said the children enjoyed meeting their new MP.
