A South Wingfield youth club received a £350 boost from a Ripley councillor.

Ripley West county councillor David Williams presented a cheque to the South Wingfield Venture Club last month.

The club at South Wingfield parish council runs from 6.30pm - 8.30pm on Thursdays and is organised by councillors Tracey Barker and parish council leader Paul Jackson.

David said; “The club keeps younger people constructively occupied during numerous Thursday evenings throughout the year and away from any anti-social behaviour. It provides physical activities they can participate in like badminton and cycling.

“It also ‘treats’ them to occasional evenings out, like trips to the pantomime during the winter months.”

The club has been running for over ten years. For more information call Paul Jackson on 07949 074847.
