Bridge going strong

A local youth charity turns 26 this year and is engaging more young people than ever. The Bridge Youth Centre’s John Prockter explained, “We’ve been through several exciting landmarks in our life as a local charity. First based in Low Town and then around sixteen years ago, we moved to Whitburn Street where we’ve been ever since.

“Each year we welcome young people to take part in our sessions, and in 2019 we had a whopping 126 individual young people come and access our premises. In the summer, 360 young people came and took part in our activities on the Crown Meadow. Still, even more than that, we’re proud to be a significant presence in the lives of young people. Some of whom volunteer with us, some who fundraise to help keep us running, some who turn to us in moments of need, and others who simply know us as a safe place to come and play.”

The group will be hosting a market stall in Bridgnorth on Saturday 28 March to sell second-hand goods and cakes – as John explained, “We’re not quite sure yet, but it should be good!”
