High praise for youths’ project

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

YOUNG­STERS from a south Ash­ford youth club have won top county recog­ni­tion for one of their suc­cess­ful projects. Trav­ellers Ad­ven­tures is run by the Christchurch Youth Cen­tre to pro­vide week­long res­i­den­tial stays for young men from the trav­el­ling com­mu­nity at the Moun­tains Cen­tre in Wales, with a variety of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing rock climb­ing and gorge walk­ing. Their ef­forts saw the lo­cal team gather for a gala evening to cel­e­brate Kent’s most suc­cess­ful youth projects, which have re­ceived fund­ing from the county coun­cil’s youth op­por­tu­ni­ties fund. Young Peo­ple’s pan­els nom­i­nated one project from each of the 12 dis­tricts and they made a three-minute pre­sen­ta­tion be­fore an in­vited au­di­ence to demon­strate how it works and why it is such a suc­cess.
