A SPECIAL meeting is being held to discuss ways of taking exciting proposals to turn Portishead's disused Kodak factory into a teenagers' centre.The idea, to convert the empty unit at Mill Road into an activity centre for local youths, was put forward by Portishead Tourism Group chairman Bill Shier.Mr Shier contacted the agents for the building who said they were 'amiable' to the idea.Now Portishead councillor John H Clark has organised a meeting for people to voice their ideas and support for the scheme.Councillor Clark said: "Some people are concerned that the Kodak factory idea could take the focus off the plans for Portishead Youth Centre."But there are many people who are very excited about developing this opportunity into a real asset for the young people of the town."I think the factory scheme could offer something different to the activities which the youth club provides. What we want is people to come along and have their say on the plans and whether they would be willing to support them and get involved."The meeting is at the Folk Hall on December 11 at 7.30pm and everyone is welcome.
