During the local election campaign last year, one issue which constantly came up on the doorstep was the lack of activities at the state of the art Shoeburyness Youth Centre. My fellow ward colleagues and I were determined to resolve this and ensure that there were more activities for our young people in the ward.
I have been involved in an action group to help increase the number of activities at the centre. I was delighted to see an article in yesterday's Echo which has seen attendance at the centre double and more youth activities provided. It was also nice to see the work of your three councillors recognised.
