Young people at Thetford Community Association's Annual General Meeting


A community association has recognised the efforts of local young people at its annual general meeting.

Thetford Community Association (TCA), which runs the ballpark on the Redcastle Estate and runs football coaching sessions, met at the Meet-Up Cafe to present a number of awards.

Thursday’s meetings saw prizes go to young people who had shown good attitude and attendance at the group’s sessions, including its weekly gardening project.

There was a new award set up in memory of founding member, Teresa Judge, who died this year.

Andy Richardson, chairman of the TCA, said: “We began as a very small group of 5 or 6 people and have managed to keep the Ballpark open for 10 years and we have delivered a whole number of additional activities including weekly football coaching sessions, a gardening club and a cooking club.”
