STATEMENT BY GLEN PARVA PARISH COUNCIL
Since September 2001, the Parish Council has operated a Youth Club at Glen Parva War Memorial hall. Originally, it was established by having an informal "drop-in" facility and outreach work provided in association with Countesthorpe Community College. Many local Councillors and other volunteers helped to set up this provision.
Once the Club became more established, youth workers were appointed to run the Youth Club and the provide outreach work in the local community. More recently, the service was provided by Leicestershire County Council.
Following a review of the Leicestershire County Council Youth provision as result of the spending review, this service was withdrawn and the Parish Council has worked in partnership with Young Leicestershire Ltd since 2013 to provide this service.
It is with regret to announce that following low attendance for a sustained period of time in recent months, it has been necessary to review this provision and a decision has been made to close the Youth Club with immediate effect.
The Parish Council would like to take this opportunity to thank Young Leicestershire Ltd and its other partners over the years for their help and assistance in delivering this valuable community service.
The Parish Council will continue to review the provision of facilities for young people and explore other opportunities of engaging with them in the future.
Mrs J Small
Parish Council Manager
