New youth club set to open
According to Welwyn Hatfield District Council (WHDC), the initiative is being organised by the Welham Green Youth Project with advisory help from the council.
The WHDC website reports that the project has recently recruited a youth leader to help manage and run the club, which will operate on Monday nights from 7-9 pm.
Youth clubs have been held at the centre in the past, but, according to a spokesperson for the North Mymms Youth and Community Centre, previous efforts to provide facilities for the area’s youth have been hit by staffing difficulties and "some behavioural problems involving a minority of young people."
"It is hoped that through new, strong leadership and behavioural contracts, the centre can once again be the host to a successful club for local youth," the spokesperson continued.
Commenting on the WHDC website, WHDC Cllr Mark Gilding, Executive Member for Partnerships, Performance and Communication, said, "we strongly believe in projects like these that improve the well being of young people by providing them with something worthwhile to do with their time."
