MP John Hayes has been trying his hand at pool and table football with a little help from young experts at Sutton Bridge Youth Club.

The club recently received more than £7,000 from People’s Health Trust, using money raised by HealthComplete through the Health Lottery, which has enabled them to fund a youth worker.

The South Holland and The Deepings MP visited the club to see it in action.

He said: “It is so important for young people to feel part of the community, and to get involved in worthwhile activities outside of school time.

“It is great to see groups like Sutton Bridge Youth Club being supported in our area through this funding.”

Club secretary Chris Brandon-King said the club’s place in the heart of the community will continue to grow now it has a youth worker to deliver more activities.”

Based in The Curlew Centre, the club has sessions for seven to 11-year-olds and those aged 12 and over.

People’s Health Trust chief executive John Hume said: “Sutton Bridge Youth Club is a fantastic group that we’re delighted to be able to support.

“This funding means that young people have a choice about what activities are provided for them through the support of a youth worker, and more importantly, have somewhere to go, have fun and make friends.”
