Heanor teenagers encouraged to attend 'Urban Club'

It's taking place at the Wilmot Street Centre throughout February.

Young people in Heanor have the chance to meet up and speak up about what they want in their community every week during February.

The Urban Club will take place every Wednesday (February 6, 13, 20 and 27) between 7.30pm and 9pm at the Wilmot Street Centre.

There will be a pool table, food and drinks and a chance to meet up with friends, as well as a chance for 11 to 16 year olds to have a say about activities, what they would like and how they feel about the community.

It’s been set up by the Heanor and Loscoe Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, Heanor and Loscoe Town Council, Heanor Multi Agency Team, Frosts, Tesco and One Stop.

PC David Norcross, of the Heanor and Loscoe Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This is an opportunity for all young people to come to their local community centre and tell us what they would like within our community.

“Please come along, meet up with others and give us your views and ideas in a safe environment whilst having fun and developing new friendships.”
