Mothers’ Union, working with a local Residents’ Association, open up a parish hall during the lunchtime break, and provide teenagers with something free to eat and drink, activities to do and a safe place to socialise.

Most days between 40 – 50 young people come along. Volunteers help in a range of ways: some by serving the food and drinks, and others who are more ‘front of house’ engage more directly with the young people.

This project has led the parish into a newly enriched relationship with the community and its young people
