Club looks for a new name

PORTISHEAD Youth Centre will be given a new name when it reopens on Monday.

The management committee has taken on the running of the Harbour Road building after North Somerset Council withdrew its funding for a youth service at the centre.

Now, to mark the beginning of a new era, young people are being asked to come up with a new name for the facility which hosts a wide range of community activities including evening youth club, pre-school day time activities and a community caf�.

Assistant manager of the centre Kim Dodd said: “It seems fitting to ask the young people who use the centre to come up with ideas for a new name. Although we now have to work constantly to secure funds to keep the centre operational, which is tough, these are exciting times and we are hoping someone will come up with a name and tag line that will reflects this.”

Under the new management, Portishead Youth Centre hopes to introduce new activities for the whole community including an increase in youth facilities.

Application forms to rename the centre are available at the Morgan Westley, The Outlet and The Sports Shop in High Street or from the youth centre itself.
