Bradninch Youth Club is up and running
9:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Mid Devon News
YOUNG people in Bradninch are celebrating after their youth club was reopened last month.
The centre has been refurbished and now boasts a pool table, games consoles, comfy sofas and a chill-out area and is open to 11 to 15 year olds weekly.
It will be managed by a group of volunteers who set up a committee and took out a rental agreement with Bradninch Youth Centre Trust in September.
Members of the committee are now in charge of the everyday running of the building at West End Hall which recently got a new roof thanks to a grant from Viridor Waste Management.
Mayor of Bradninch Luke Taylor has helped drive the project forward and said it was one of the main reasons he joined the town council six years ago.
He added: “Bradninch has always had the need for a youth club and I was lucky growing up in the town that we had one, but unfortunately it ceased due to funding.
“We now have a budding team of volunteers looking to provide aplace foryoungpeople to go to meet with friends and enjoy activities.”
The youth club will run every Wednesday (including holidays) from 7pm-9pm and costs £1 a week.
The team are always looking for more volunteers.
