New club meeting

THE committee for the new youth centre in Eastwood held its first meeting this week.

The committee, made up of teachers, school children, councillors and youth workers, has been set up to decide on what services and equipment to offer and talk about funding.

Youth worker Andy Allsop said: “It’s to ensure the club has that link with the community, but the young people have ownership, and it is user-led.”

The meetings will be held monthly at Eastwood’s SAFE shop in Nottingham Road.
