The old Brook Youth Club in Sackville Street may soon have a new use. The active groups of Scouts, Guides and Air Cadets who currently use the Old Brewery in Hambrook Street will be moving in.
The building at Hambrook Street has had lots of problems over the years including the roof leaking badly. The Brook Club is vacant as the Youth Club has moved to new premises at the Somerstown Community Hub.
"This is a good new use for the Brook Club," says Lib Dem Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson. "This will mean that local youngsters in the heart of Somerstown have a local Scout group, a local Guides group and a local Air Cadet group. This will provide great new opportunities for youngsters to have something positive to do in the area."
