Youth Provision in Somercotes

“Cllr Paul Smith, Chairman of the Parish Council, says that he is extremely concerned about the future of youth work throughout Derbyshire. Somercotes will ultimately be affected with the closure of the youth club. Negotiations are being undertaking to utilise the Youth Centre building for new youth provision in Somercotes to support the community. The government is hoping that community groups and the voluntary sector will provide youth opportunities through bidding for funding held by the MAT (Multi-Agency Teams). The Parish Council will discuss youth provision in Somercotes, at its next meeting, on Friday, 20th January 2012”.     

A paper petition on the loss of Youth provision in Somercotes will be available in the Parish Council Office and Somerlea Park Community Centre for signing.
