Youngsters in Middleton by Wirksworth have no excuses for being bored this summer after the arrival of a brand-new youth club.

The brainchild behind the club was Jane Monaghan who, despite some much-needed resources, has developed a popular and well attended club.

Jane, who is also landlady of the Nelsons Arms, said: “When we moved to Middleton, I noticed that a number of kids were hanging around without much to do in the evenings, so I decided to do something about it.”

However, the group are now looking for people who have a skill they could share with the youngsters for a one-off session.

The group meets on Thursday evenings in Middleton Village Hall from 7pm until 9pm.

If you can help please contact Jane at the Nelson Arms or come and find the Youth Club stalls at Middleton Village Fete on July 14.
