Thursday 5th December 2013

New youth club launches this Friday in Fareham Park

Fareham Borough Council is helping to launch a new youth project for 13-17 years olds in the Fareham Park area after local residents voted for a community grant to be spent on providing more things for young people to do.

 

The club called Fareham Park Youth Hut will open at Fareham North West Community Centre on 6th December and then every Friday after between 7.15pm - 9.15pm.This week entry is free, no booking is required but from the 13th December an entry charge of 50p per session will apply.

 

The project will be run by a local youth work charity, Y services who received funding based on the votes of over 300 people. Voting took place in July at the Fareham Park Purse Fun Day where numerous local charities and community groups presented their ideas for how they would use grant funding to benefit people in the Fareham Park area.

 

Executive for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Connie Hockley said: 'We are really pleased to be able to award Y Services grant funding to deliver this worthwhile programme within the Fareham Park community. This project will provide a fun and safe place for teenagers to meet their friends and also meet adults who are not their parents or teachers and with whom they can discuss matters important to them.'
