Relaunched planned for Hawes Youth Club

Members of Hawes Youth Club.

Plans are underway to relaunch Hawes Youth Club.

The club has recently closed due to staffing issues and a drop in numbers.

However, youth leaders say the club, for 11 to 16-year-olds, will be relaunched soon.

Funding has been provided for two new members of staff to run the club.

Richie Bastow, from North Yorkshire Youth, said: “Hawes Youth Club is an important part of the upper Dales community and has provided young people with a warm and safe space to relax and socialise with friends for many years.

“Currently the club is looking to rebuild its staff/volunteer team thanks to new funding from Big lottery, Hawes and High Abbotside Parish Council and NYCC Stronger communities.

“This will keep the club running more consistently and carry out the necessary improvements needed to make it a success once again.

“We have planned an open youth drop-in meeting for young people, parents and community members to receive feedback and ideas on the club, as well as what youth provision in currently running in the upper Dales.”

A meeting will be held for children, parents and community members to discuss the future of the club at Hawes Market Hall on February 20 from 6.30pm to 8pm.
