Our Deputy Mayor had the pleasure of attending the formal opening of the Community Youth Centre which is based in Ludgershall. He attended as Deputy Mayor of Tidworth Town Council, in the absence of the Mayor of Tidworth, Cllr Mark Connolly.
Tony Pickernell, Chair of Trustees for the Centre and also Deputy Mayor, Ludgershall Town Council. Gave a brief talk on all the hard work that has gone into, firstly setting up the board of trustees and then renovating the building and updating the facilities, of the old Wiltshire Council Youth Club.
The building was officially opened by Cllr Mike Giles (Ludgershall Town Council’s Mayor) who cut the ribbon and spoke about the new community facility which will initially be opened for 11-16 year olds but it is hoped that this will grow.
The Services of Johnathan T Jester have been commissioned to run the youth service and the trustees were very keen to point out that whilst the building is situated in Ludgershall it is for Ludgershall, Tidworth, Perham and the surrounding communities.
