Vow to help groups run youth centre

Have your say

DISCUSSIONS over the future of Holbeach Youth Centre will continue to help volunteers find a “sustainable plan” to run it.

Lincolnshire County Council has vowed to help support those who will help run the facility in light of county-wide funding cuts to youth services.

The authority outlined its position after Holbeach parish councillors spoke of their concerns about who might be willing to run it last week.

Coun Patricia Bradwell, executive councillor for Children’s Services, said: “Our Children’s Services team have held stakeholder events in Holbeach followed by further discussions with members of the current youth centre management committee, trustees of the sports hall and other interested parties who have come forward.

“This is to look at developing a sustainable plan for continued delivery of activities and management of the youth centre.

“We can help support groups put together a sustainable plan and get more dedicated volunteers involved. Discussions with all interested parties in Holbeach will continue and if anyone else is willing to come forward and get involved there will be another meeting in early March.”

Anyone who would like to get involved should call Lincolnshire County Council on 01522 782111.
