YOUNGSTERS in Bourne are enjoying a new youth centre.

The Impact youth resource centre in Manning Road recently held an opening ceremony with a mobile skate ramp.

Scores of youngsters turned up to see the new facility and show their skills on the ramp.

The centre is a joint project between the Bourne Corps of the Salvation Army, housing developer Larkfleet Group and the Len Pick Trust.

Both the Salvation Army and the Len Pick Trust contributed £6,000, with Larkfleet covering the rest.

The new building, which is alongside the Salvation Army Hall, offers a variety of activities and equipment including internet access, computer games, TV lounge, pool, table football, air hockey, video projector and multi-media music facilities, tuck shop, and barbecue area.

Outdoor games, including a basketball and football, will also be available.

Corps secretary Charles Green said: “It was a fantastic day. We had loads of children come along, some with parents.”

The new centre will be run and supported financially by the Salvation Army.
