The Frith Youth Centre was threatened with closure as the current trustees, who had been in post decided it was times to hand over the reins. with no-one forthcoming the Parish Council stepped into the breach. Debbie has set up and is chairing a Working Party to turn the Youth Club into a Community Hub. The Youth Club is currently operating at a large deficit each year and new funding streams need to be found to support youth activities "We have identified several issues that currently limit the usage of this facility including décor, and also identified new uses the Club could be used for such as a Lunch Club, exercise classes and toddler groups. this would provide the much needed revenue to provide activities for the young people in our Parish" said Debbie.
Plans have been started to work with The Door Youth Project in Stroud and Debbie has applied for several grants to be able to undertake the work needed to turn the Club into a Community Hub and regenerate this valuable facility "This is a really exciting project " Debbie said " and I am delighted to be working with The Door who have a strong reputation in this field"
