Come on board to help youth

Published on: 01 Oct 2014

YOU may have read about the exciting new plans to turn the old Staple Hill Primary School into a new centre for young people and the community. 

Whilst South Gloucestershire Council goes through the final decision making process in regards to the area of the old primary still vacant, local community groups are coming together to see how they can utilise the space and make it a hub for young people in Staple Hill and surrounding areas. 

Staple Hill Methodist Youth Project, which has been providing youth clubs and activities for young people in Staple Hill for nearly a decade, is one of these such groups and is calling on local people with an interest in youth services to join their management committee. 

Robert Sharp, youth projects manager, said he wanted people with an interest in youth provision to come on board.

“The local community is at the heart of any project like this, and with their support anything is possible.

“We’re really excited about the prospect of running youth services from this new building, and we’d like local people to become part of that.” 

Plans for the old primary school building could include out of school clubs, music production workshops, climbing wall and cafe.

No experience is necessary for joining the management committee just a small amount of voluntary time and a passion for helping young people thrive.
