ECC Cllr John Lodge: Youth Strategy must continue in 2015

This week I attended an excellent evening to showcase work sponsored by the Youth Strategy Group. There were around 10 youth organisations which presented the work they were doing and see even gave live performances of their work.

The common thread was that they had all received significant monies from UDC which had greatly enhanced the work which they were doing. Good work by UDC and we must keep it up next year.

This evening’s meeting of the UDC sponsored sports group was also encouraging and I got assurances from the council leader that a sports strategy WILL be incorporated into the brand new UDC plan.
