Following the dissolving of the Newport and Gilberdyke Youth Project in August, Gilberdyke Parish Council is very pleased to announce it is establishing a new Youth Project in order to continue to work with young people in the area and provide them with a service which provides entertainment, fun, guidance and opportunity. The new project will be spearheaded by Gemma Wallace and Fiona Rainforth who were involved in the previous scheme, and Cllrs are confident that their considerable experience and knowledge will ensure the new project is a roaring success.
These are early days for the Project and there is much to do – the Parish Council will review the project on a regular basis, measuring its success and ensuring it is fit for purpose and a formal review is scheduled in six months time to determine the future of the project.
We hope everyone will agree a Youth Project is a valuable asset for the community and Cllrs are both excited and proud to be proving the opportunity for this to happen. A key aspect of the new project will be to listen to young people themselves in what they want out of the project, and we shall keep everyone up to date on our progress. This website has a dedicated page for the Youth Project and also a Facebook Page, both of which we shall use to update the community.
