YOUNGSTERS in Attleborough have an extra place to hang out after a new youth club opened its doors this month.

Those aged 11-16 are welcome to come along to the Attleborough Community and Enterprise Centre every Friday night to meet friends, play games, listen to music or just chill out with a drink and something from the tuck shop.

The club, which is run by trained volunteers, comes equipped with a sound system and a range of music, a Wii games console, a Playstation 2, pool table and bean bags. It opens 6pm until 9pm, and entry is 50p.

Members of the Attleborough Youth Project, Attleborough Safer Neighbourhood Team, volunteers and parents have worked for 18 months to open the new facility after youngsters complained there were few places for them to go and things to do within the town.

Alison Taylor, chairman of the Attleborough Youth Project, thanked the manager's centre Jane Bartram for allowing the club to use the Friday night slot.

'We want the youngsters to tell us what equipment they would like to use and also if there are any other activities they would like us to do. We want their involvement so this facility can evolve into somewhere they want to spend time in,' she said.
