“Is the future of the Youth Club and its building, of sufficient importance to justify the community working together to raise the funds (grants, donations, etc.) to renovate the building, to establish an organisation to run the Youth Club and to meet the annual running costs of the Youth Club and the building?”

Residents are invited to join the members of the working party at Brading Town Hall on Thursday 29th September from 14:00-19:00 to share and seek ideas on:

• How do we save the Youth Club and building?
• What is the Community Project?
• Who is involved?
• What do you think?
• Could you help?
