Shipston Youth Club finds a new home

After being forced to vacate its home of over 40 years on the High School site, Shipston Youth Club has finally found a new home. Various different locations were explored at length to find somewhere that was the safest for young people and offered the most. The Club has now moved to Shipston Enterprise Centre on Pittway Avenue. It meets there on Tuesday evenings from 7pm. Although it has only been open a couple of months it has already proved popular. Attracting up to almost 30 young people for an evening.

Young People can enjoy chilling out, playing table tennis or pool, organising their own competitions or just chatting with the staff and volunteers.

“At last we have been able to run again and already we have shown that Shipston does still needs somewhere young people can go to and feel safe, with people to talk to and something to do,” said Daniel Pulham, Chair of the Club’s Management Committee. “We are immensely grateful to so many in Shipston who have encouraged us to keep going. We are especially grateful to Clear Sound who kindly agreed to move our equipment out of our previous premises for free and to Carl Starkey. That generosity really blew us away!”

The club is now looking to appoint a new Worker in Charge to help take the club and its members into a new exciting future. Application details can be obtained from Mr John Round at The club is also looking for more volunteers.
