A Burnham Youth Club and Highbridge bus service have received funding from Somerset County Council’s youth and community service.
The Highbridge Alpha Point bus has received £3,492, while The Zone Youth Club, based in Burnham, has gained £3,225.
The youth and community service has given out more than £105,000 in grant spending money, which will benefit a total of 34 youth clubs in Somerset.
Cabinet member for children and young people, councillor Frances Nicholson, said: “Provision for our young people is incredibly important so I am really pleased we are able to provide these grants, which, combined with money raised by local communities, ensure the clubs are sustainable.
“Central of course to ensuring there is good support for young people is the dedicated hard work of the volunteers, without whom there would be no youth clubs present in our communities.”
