    The work undertaken at Penwortham Youth and Community Centre is of vital importance, not only to the local community but to each individual that walks through the door. I have been associated with the centre for a number of years and seen young people blossom into well rounded, mature and creative adults. A centre such as this focuses on the individual as well as the group as a result many young people have walked away with confidence, friendships and skills they could not have developed under other circumstances. To loose the centre would be a great disservice to the young people in attendance of the clubs and societies the building homes and a tragedy for the young people who are yet to discover the joys and fulfilment the centre can bring to them.

    This is a regularly used, well run youth and community centre, that holds many fond memories. There is no justification in closing it.

    I think it would be an utter disgrace to close the youth centre down. On a personal level it wasn't for the work Ron Blenkinship has done with the youth theatre I wouldn't be who I am today. When I joined as a child I was extremely shy and a bit uncommunicative and now I'm a drama teacher and a performer myself. I fully support the work of penwortham youth centre and question the prospects and opportunities available to young people in a world of mass unemployment. What is left for them to do- hang out on street corners? You reap what you sow…

    I think it would be such a shame for the youth centre to close,I used to go to a drama group here and dancing-giving me many opportunities to make friends and socialise with others!!

    As a volunteer at the centre and a young person who once used the service I am outraged. With a whole host of frontline services to young people being cut in addition to their limited bleak future what will they have left? If a generation is just not resourced for how will they develop into the role model citizens that this country needs.\r\n\r\nThe centre has a recording studio which I help run, a youth theatre, St Johns Ambulance, Disabled groups, Dance groups, youth parliament, drop in clubs and more. This alone justifies the sheer importance of not just a building, but a community of workers and young people positively engaging.\r\n\r\nWhat will the young generation have left but to fill the negative stereotype which already shadows them.
