Help Divert crisis – Volunteers Needed!
After nearly 40 years serving the young people of West Moors, the West Moors Youth Club is at risk of closure at the end of the current academic year unless they can harness local support.
The crisis is the result of the resignation of a number of Trustees and members of the Management Committee, all of whom have served the Youth Club for many years.
“In order for the Youth Club to continue we need to find a number of volunteers to join the Committee”, said Kurt Hallam, the outgoing Chairman. “Ideally, we need younger people who have the ideas, vision and enthusiasm to take the Youth Club into the next ten years. Preferably a parent or parents of young teenagers who know what the young people of today need.”
The West Moors Youth Club was founded in 1982 and has its own purpose-built club house on Fryer Field and employs two professional and qualified Youth Workers to supervise the sessions currently held on Monday evenings for Year 7 and Tuesday evenings for those in year 8. The club aims at providing a range of activities that are both stimulating and fun.
If your feel passionate about providing for the young people of West Moors and have the drive and vision with a little time to spare, please telephone Ray Hilton Garner on either 01202 871757 or 07767 214845.
AGM Friday 30th July at 7pm in the Youth Club Building at Fryer Field.
There is a real need in the village and the last thing anyone wants to hear is the united voices of the young people of West Moors saying, “We’re bored, there’s nothing to do!”
