Great response to new youth club provision in Cramlington
November 7, 2022
Cramlington Town Council is delighted with the response to their three new youth clubs which had their first sessions last week.
The council’s Youth co-ordinator Joe Eltringham said, “The youth activity providers were pleased with the attendance and encouraged that the youngsters indicated they would come back and also bring their friends along.”
“We are funding Cramlington Voluntary Youth Project to lead the activities because of their experience and local knowledge. We also are delighted to be working in partnership with Beaconhill Community Centre to facilitate the youth club there.”
Beaconhill Youth Club takes place on Wednesdays with outreach work from 6pm and activities in the community centre from 7.30pm – 9.30 pm.
Northburn Youth Club is held on Thursday’s from 6pm -9pm at Northburn Community Centre and is for 13 to 17-year-olds.
On Friday evenings Eastfield Youth Club takes place at the Church of the Nazarene from 6pm-9pm and it too is for 13 to 17-year-olds.
Councillor Helen Morris, Chairman of the Cramlington Town Council Community and Youth Committee commented “It is reassuring to see that the new youth clubs that we have funded are being well used. Following the instigation of a Community Trigger, which initiates a multi-agency approach to anti-social behaviour issues, the council took swift action and provided the three Youth Clubs that are specifically targeting older youngsters. The police advised us about the locations of the Clubs and if they continue to be well-received the council will look to continue the provision following the initial pilot project.”
