Ludlow Town Council to fund Junior Youth Club in 2021

Ludlow Town Council has agreed to provide the financial support to keep Ludlow Junior Youth Club running in 2021 after Shropshire Council decided to withdraw funding to the youth club.

Mayor of Ludlow, Cllr Tim Gill said, ‘I am proud that Ludlow Town Council has stepped in to fund the running of the youth club for the next year. The Town Council has suffered significant financial losses due to the pandemic, but my fellow councillors and I believe that supporting Ludlow’s young people is one of the most important things that we can do.’

Richard Parkes, CEO of Shropshire Youth Association said ‘This is fantastic news at a time when youth clubs are needed more than ever to support local children and young people, Ludlow Town Council have given the club a new lease of life. We are still meeting with the young people both virtually and out and about, as is allowed by Covid rules as youth work is an essential service. We very much look forward to getting back into the building to deliver an exciting programme again.’

From April 2021, Ludlow Town Council will be providing over £9,000 for Shropshire Youth Association to run Ludlow’s weekly Junior Youth Club.
