25 years ago I stepped into a hut at the bottom of the Wells Blue School playing fields as the new part-time Advice Worker for YMCA Mendip.
A local Councillor, Sue Thurgood, invited MP James Heappey to visit the YMCA Mendip & South Somerset Youth Clubs in Glastonbury.
Our Youth Clubs have been looking at saving our environment over the last month. A new worldwide ecological initiative ‘Go-Brik’ is growing in popularity and our young people who attend the YMCA Youth Clubs in Street and Glastonbury wanted to try it out for themselves.
It’s nice being comfortable; with education, health, life events and money. Some of this is down to our own efforts, some of it inherited and some of it is luck. Some people are less fortunate; with their origins, sometimes through their own actions, bad luck or how they are helped or not helped by the state.
