Ashill club faces closure without new leader

A Breckland youth club could have to close at the end of April if it does not find a new leader.

Ashill Junior Youth Club has been running for more than 20 years and meets on the first and third Friday of each month.

It is open to children from the age of eight until they finish year six at primary school and takes place from 7pm until 9pm at the village’s community centre.

But the 10 youngsters who attend each night could be left disappointed if the committee does not find a new youth leader.

A volunteer is needed to help set up for each session, run the club on the night, take subs from the children and pack up at the end.

It usually involves giving up about 2.5 hours each youth club night.

If a new leader is not found, the club will have to close at the end of April.
