The ABC Youth Club in Awsworth was reopened by former Nottingham Forest captain John McGovern on Thursday September 11 and more than 40 children enjoyed its debut evening of activities.

The club had stood empty for the last eight years but several local parents clubbed together to campaign for permission to reopen it on a Thursday night.

Snooker games, ping pong matches and glitter and glue crafts kept the children busy, and parents had the chance to have a look around.

The club is open to children aged ten to 15-years-old in Awsworth, Babbington and Cossall and it is hoped it will prevent anti-social behaviour in these areas.
