We are pleased to report that a full time Youth Worker will start in Ashington in early November. This is a joint Parish Council/Parish Church project to get Youth Services back into the village following WSCC's youth services cuts. The Parish Council had funded temporary Youth Workers for quite some time but is pleased that this joint initiative with the Church has resulted in the recruitment of a permanent Youth Worker. Please contact the Parish Clerk if you are interested in more details.
