Police are appealing for villagers in Clenchwarton to support a new youth club in the village.

The pilot youth club, for 11 to 17 years olds, is currently being run every Monday evening at the village pavilion by two Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) from Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team.

The club was set up, thanks to the offer of accommodation from the parish council, to keep local youths occupied and help reduce concerns about anti-social behaviour at the playing field.

PCSO Kat Ebbage, who has been running the club with colleague Angela Tegerdine for four weeks, said the interest shown by local teenagers meant an extra pair of hands was required.

“We've had a really positive reaction to the club from the teenagers and parents but it would be difficult to maintain this weekly facility without volunteers from the village to help out.

“We need responsible adults who can offer some time to help supervise and engage with the young people at the club. It's a really rewarding experience and volunteers will be contributing to keeping their village safe and young people off the streets.”

The club is open between 6.30pm and 9pm every Monday evening with an entry fee of just 25p.

Volunteers will form part of a team at the club and will be required to take a Criminal Records Bureau check before working with the youths.
