A number of young people attended a pizza launch for the new wellbeing drop-in centre in Cheddar.

The charity offers people aged 13-18 a place to go to access peer-to-peer support, counselling, advice and guidance.

The centre, which is held in Cheddar Methodist Church Hall, also creates a safe place for young people to meet friends and make new ones too.

Project leader for Somerset Rural Youth Project, Amanda Johnson, said: “We are excited about the future and are looking forward to working closely with the young people to help make a positive and sustainable change.”

The centre is made possible thanks to an NHS award which will run for the first six months to allow organisers to learn and move forward.

To find out more about the centre, contact Heath Colman on 07725 692452 or John Pimblott on 07723 562125.
