MEMBERS of Weston's YMCA board are still working on a way of preventing its closure.

They announced in January that the youth club in Bristol Road Lower could be forced to shut because the upstairs rooms in the building can no longer be rented out.

Weston's MP John Penrose is due to meet with board members and businessmen from the town on Friday to discuss the future of the club and building.

He said: "We're working on a rescue package to keep the YMCA open. I'm pleased to say the youth club is still functioning and it is getting plenty of help from loyal local supporters.
