Harry Shires was recently appointed by the East Riding Council to a Lead Youth Worker position for Hornsea with the responsibility of creating a new youth club for the town so as to provide children of all ages a safe place to go on an evening as well as provide opportunities for learning and recreation. It is hoped that the benefits of this will be to reduce the number of children on the streets and also bring children together.
At the Town Council meeting Harry and his co-worker Viki produced a report of their work so far to the Town Council and a wide range of issues were discussed. A location for the Youth Centre is being sought and contacts made with existing youth groups as well as local media and other local groups.
Harry and Viki are very keen that the young people in the town should have an input at the consultation stage which is why they have prepared the survey on the right and encourage all young people in the town to get involved. They plan to hold outreach events during the month of August. They are also keen to attract volunteers to help with the project.
