Nothing in Nantwich?


Time and time again, young people complain that there’s nothing to do in Nantwich. There are plenty of clubs and activities for the under 13’s. Pubs and Clubs provide a variety of entertainments when you’re legally old enough to use them. But there seems to be precious little that attracts young people between 13 and 18.

 

Well, have I got news for you! The Guy Harvey Youth Club in Birchin Lane has activities for young people three nights every week. There are, for example, regular film nights, football and pool tournaments, darts, basketball and fashion shows. The Youth Leaders, Sonia O’Hara and Dave Short, organise whatever their members want. There’s a small coffee bar where you can enjoy refreshments and have a quiet chat with your friends. Special trips such as canal boat weekends and visits to Alton Towers are laid on whenever funds permit.

 

The Guy Harvey Youth Club caters for all young people in the Nantwich Area, no matter what school they attend. The only criteria is that you have to be 13 or over. Its activities are geared to provide what the members want. It sets out to offer entertainment and to let young people enjoy themselves. It allows the members to take responsibility for organising events and activities, whilst supporting them to achieve their plans. These activities help the members mature and develop into responsible young adults within the local community.

 

 

The Guy Harvey Youth Club needs help.

What we need,

 

said David Fishburne, Chairman of the Management Committee,

 

is more young people and parents to get involved in the management of the Club

 

Hector Robb, a member of the Management Committee for over 6 years, agrees.

We need to keep in tune with the needs and wishes of the young people of Nantwich. By involving young people and their parents in setting the direction of the Club, we will be able to achieve so much more.
