Youngsters finally able to enjoy new centre

The doors of the delayed Hunmanby youth centre finally opened this week to youngsters in the village.

The building, which is officially known as the Neesom Centre, was opened for the first time to the public on Tuesday evening.

Around a dozen youngsters were present to enjoy the facilities in the building, which had been a dream of residents Liz Mullin and Lavinia Kirk for several years.

Building work began last year, but a string of setbacks meant that the opening date was repeatedly pushed back.

The ribbon was cut on the building earlier in the summer by Hunprenco founder Eddie Neesom, who made a five figure donation in order for the centre, in Stonegate, to be built.

However, a further setback resulted in the public opening date to be moved back again.

The centre is expected to be open on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening, between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.

Anybody wishing to volunteer, please call in at the centre.
