Provision for Young People in Uphill
The Uphill Village Society has been keen to see improvements to the provision that exist for young people in the village.
Uphill Village Society Chair, Stewart Castle says, “Not only must we look at facilities and resources, we must also invest in young people themselves. We have some great youngsters in the village who have often made requests for help in providing better facilities. Giving a young person responsibility, and a chance to influence decision-making, and you will be surprised what a great job they can do for themselves. The youth club that ran in the village some years ago so successfully albeit for a limited period was an example of this.
The Uphill Village Society working with North Somerset Coast YMCA recently held two successful taster taster sessions in the village and this is no being extended to full Youth Club for ages 10 to 15 on Thursdays between 6.30 and 8.30pm . Held at the St Nicholas church hall adjacent to the village playing field there is a minimal charge of £1.50 entry.
