Linda has welcomed extra funding for a youth group in the village.

Huddersfield South Area Committee has allocated £1,000 to buy arts and crafts equipment, board games, a secure cabinet to store equipment and stock to set up a tuck shop at the group. Proceeds from sales at the tuck shop will be used to improve facilities at the group further. The group meets on Wednesdays from 7 to 9.30pm at the Wesley Centre in the village.

Linda said: “This youth group is already extremely popular, and over 25 young people aged from 13 to 19 attend regularly. This funding will help secure its future and make it even more popular. We’re often told that young people have little to do, but this group gives them somewhere to go and make friends and take part in fun activities.”
