Have your say

SOUTH Holland’s youth centres are back up and running after the summer break with new opening times.

r Spalding Youth Centre will be open on Wednesdays from 7pm to 9.30pm and be charging young people just £1 for their first ten attendances.

The price will drop to just 50p for those who attend more than ten times.

There are also opportunities for those who attend to win free nights by taking part in various competitions and quizzes due to be held within the next few months.

The youth centre also offers a range of opportunities to learn to play musical instruments and take part in a variety of sports.

r Holbeach Youth Centre will be opening on Fridays from 7pm to 9.30pm and there will also be the chance to win free nights and plays sports.

Admission is just 50p.

The two youth centres saw their hours slashed earlier this year as part of Lincolnshire County Council spending cuts.

A number of youth workers were also made redundant.

r Donington Youth Centre is open on Mondays and is run by volunteers with support from Lincolnshire County Council.

More volunteers are needed to help with the running of the centre and anyone who has a few spare hours to support the young people in the village should contact youth and community development worker Sam Newton on 07775 997120.
