FRODSHAM Youth Club is 40 years old this year – and organisers say more support from local people would be the best birthday present ever!
Kathy Hardy, a qualified youth worker at the youth club, attached to the community centre in Fluin Lane, has issued a plea for more supporters to help maintain and improve facilities.
“This is a fantastic facility which only exists because 40 years ago a few residents were prepared to put their names forward as trustees for the building to ensure it would be there for our young people for generations to come – and many of those same people are still with us,” said Kathy.
“I have lived in Frodsham for 30 years. I don’t have teenagers, but I do have a six-year-old daughter and I want the youth club to be still there offering her something to do independent from her family, somewhere to go and someone to talk to – it isn’t always me – whenever she needs it when she reaches those ever-so-complicated years.“
Club activities currently include the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, street dance, beat mixing and MC-ing, Judo, Urban Art, Wii, Wide Screen TV and free internet access.
Kathy added: “There is lots going on and the club is popular, but this important facility needs your help. You can do this by working with young people directly. You will be trained and CRB checked and supported.”
