I was pleased to open the Lingfield Youth Club on Friday evening and had a great time getting involved in some of the games – I even went in goal and got involved in a dancing competition! Great to see the children enjoying themselves. The Club is run from the Lingfield and Dormansland Community Centre and is aimed at providing 10-14 year olds with a safe, stimulating and fun environment offering activities, theme nights, dance and football tutorials, in addition to trips out. The original Lingfield Youth Club which had existed for many years was sadly closed at the beginning of last year. The Parish Council appealed for volunteers to re-open the club and a number came forward. I congratulate them on their achievement of getting the club up and running again with little funding – great news for kids in Lingfield!
