RELOAD WRAGBY - LINCOLNSHIRE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS CENTRE CELEBRATES


Trustees and supporters of Wragby Youth and Community Sports Centre met recently to offer an Open Day where local residents and others could tour and see the progress being made into making the Wragby Centre into the County Boys and Girls Clubs Centre and equally importantly an improved resource for the people of Wragby and surrounding villages.

Prof Charles Shaw, Chair of Lincolnshire Council for Voluntary Youth Services and Lead Director of Lincolnshire Youth Association, who is also a Bardney Group Councillor said "This is an important day for Lincolnshire because many other counties have a major centre linked to the National Association of Boys and Girls Clubs , now Lincolnshire have one and we are making it a real resource for Wragby too.

We want to preserve the history of the building and the heritage of former youth club activity and from when the core building was a school and continue to build on the history of Wragby". "I also want to pay tribute and thanks to all who have kept Wragby Sports Centre alive in the past so that it was here for us when we needed it.

Mrs Frances Carlsen, Development Officer for Lincolnshire Council for Voluntary Youth Services commented " We have all been working hard to ensure the future of this great building and now need Volunteers to come forward to be involved in the various projects that will be developed here.  We are open for business and mean business, the centre is open for adult and youth groups to use and we are committed to the development of a regular open youth club in the centre said Mr Pete Read of Discover Volunteering CIC one of the Trustees and we can be contacted via reloadwragby@cvys.org.uk. or 01673 858371 or LYA on 0871 288 6935 or LCVYS on 01522 720789.

 Visitors including newly elected Louth Town Councillor Mr Maurice Belwood an LYA supporter commented on the improved coffee bar and reception facilities as bringing life to the centre.

By September 2019 the centre as well as activites on most days also aims to have the centre office manned 10 - 4 Tues, Wed and Thurs for bookings.
