Plea to revive youth club

Parish councillors in Tintwistle are looking to reopen their village youth club.

It closed several years ago due to a lack of people to run it. 

Former leader Cllr Pat Jenner now reckons it's time to try and recruit helpers. 

Other councillors agreed and what could be the re-birth of the youth club will be discussed at this month's council meeting. 

Cllr Jenner said: "This building [the community building in Sexton Street] was bought for a youth club. 

"We need to bear in mind that it should always be kept as a youth club. We need a qualified youth worker and volunteers. 

"I was willing to go with a volunteer, but nobody stepped forward." 

Cllr Shaun Grace suggested making a fresh recruitment attempt, saying: "There maybe some people who have moved into the village who may want to volunteer. 

"There is £200 from the scarecrow competition which could be spent on a youth worker."
