TEENAGERS are being given a chance to have a greater say in what goes on in Cotford St Luke.

Cotford Parish Council has contracted the In The Mix Youth Project to provide fortnightly sessions for teenagers aged 14 to 17, focussed on developing their input in community issues.

In The Mix is an organisation set up in 2011, which works with young people across Somerset, Devon and Dorset.

Nick Harvey, a youth worker with the organisation, said: “We are really excited about this project and glad we were successful in our application to run it.

“It's a great idea to involve young people in the local community and we are looking forward to working with the parish council and young people.

“We are keen to recruit more young people to the session who want to have their voice heard and ideas listened too.”

The group meets at the community centre on Mondays, from 7.30-9.30pm.

There will be projects, games, workshops and training. For more information, click here 

Adult volunteers are also sought to support the project - email info@inthemixproject.org.uk or phone 01984-248062 for more information.
