      Hello Ian, Yes, this is quite a difficult one. When we did the Community Plan back in 2007/08 we found it extremely difficult to contact young people to find out what they wanted in the village, and even more difficult to reach the youth. There was a demand for a Youth Club besides the one that is run by the Methodist Chapel. Having said that, none of the parents wanted to join in as supervisors! The only local youth group I know of for boys are the Scouts. There is a new Youth Club running over in Whiteparish.

      There was also talk of a local boys football team, but that has not taken off as yet. Most of the kids go down onto the Recreation Ground and play on their bikes or kick a ball about. Most other activities they get involved in are in connection with their school. Sorry I can’t be of more help than that. Regards to you. John Martin.
