Youngsters to be asked what they want

A HOST of new leisure activities could soon be put on for children in Nailsea, thanks to a new grant from North Somerset Council.

Volunteer group Community Opportunities in Nailsea (COIN) has been given a �21,500 grant to develop a wide range of new activities for children and young people in Nailsea, Wraxall and Tickenham.

COIN is now inviting youngsters to tell them what activities they would like put on in the area.

Group chairman Karl Day said: “We see this as an important opportunity for our young people.

“We know that increased participation improves life chances through increased confidence and the development of practical skills that directly improve employability opportunities.”

There are already a number of activities on offer for youngsters in Nailsea but the additional funding has been allocated to target the gaps in provision, as identified by young people in the area.

The group is now looking for a partner to help it carry out a survey of young people’s views, as well as groups who are keen to develop community projects for youngsters.
