In the past Sherburn has had many youth clubs and youth ‘drop ins’, but these have since been discontinued for various reasons. Sherburn currently doesn’t have a Youth Club, however Councilor Mel Hobson plans to change this. The local councilor has put plans forward to develop a youth centre for Sherburn’s young people to use. At a recent Sherburn Parish Council Meeting, it was suggested to place 2 portable buildings / units for both youth and community activities, in the hopes that it will give teenagers a “sense of ownership”. With the village growing, the council feel giving the next generation a place to call their own is a fantastic idea, and the project is set to become a reality in the coming months.
