A YOUTH worker is calling on struggling organisations for youngsters to join forces and help reduce antisocial behaviour.

Jackie Williams, who used to work with Kewstoke Youth Club before it was forced to close, is trying to get in touch with other groups in a similar position.

She said: "In order to run youth facilities we need a management committee and need volunteers from other villages to amalgamate with us.

"If we can get one group running between us it would benefit everyone. It is difficult for youngsters in the villages to access facilities in Weston.

"When the Kewstoke club was open it had over 50 members but we could not get a management committee together for it to run.

"We need at least six people for it but preferably more."

Kewstoke Youth Club, which used to meet in the village hall in Crookes Lane, had to shut its doors until further notice last year due to a lack of volunteers.

If anyone can help to run a villages youth club and become a member of a joint management committee they can call Jackie on 07734006427.
