More families are needed to host young people from Germany to maintain a youth exchange that has been running since 2003.

Weston Town Council is appealing for families to host German exchange students in April.

Host families will need to provide a breakfast, packed lunch and dinner most days and will receive an allowance of £120 per student.

The students will spend the weekend away and have a full programme of day trips.

Anyone can take part, providing they have a spare room for a student for the 12 days.

Host families do not have to speak German, as all the young people speak good English.

Those who host a young person and have young people in their family aged 12 to 17 will be offered a chance to visit Hildesheim in the return trip in October.
