A community organisation in Worle has created a programme of new events since becoming a charity last year.

Big Worle was set up in 2011 when it was given £1million to improve the area.

It became a registered charity in November last year, with the aim of continuing its weekly groups and supporting projects.

Administrator Vicki Tucker said: “Since becoming a charity Big Worle is going from strength to strength.”

In the past six months, it has registered 30 young people at its YMCA Worle Youth Project.

It has also started a fortnightly Citizens Advice Bureau drop-in at the Big Worle Hub, in Clovelly Road, and the next session will be on Monday.

Its other new projects include a community café every Tuesday and Friday morning, from 9am to noon, during term time.

It will also start a new Tuesday running club. The first one will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday.
