And introducing Emily – the newly appointed Youth & Sustainability Manager

Group-Image “I have lived in the village for 2 years after moving from Southampton.  My background of working with young people stems from my involvement in The Gantry Youth Theatre where I progressed from being a member to a tutor.  I also gained valuable experience from a variety of projects, such as dealing with young people who have been excluded from schools and those at risk of offending,

in conjunction with the NSPCC, to stage managing an award winning youth production in The Jermyn Street Theatre, London. I have also worked in prisons as a Drama & IT Tutor, and as a Drug Advisory Worker with adult offenders.

I have been volunteering at The Lounge since January and am excited to now be in a position to build on and develop, the initial success of the project and support the work the Management Committee have already put in. We are still looking for more volunteers at all levels so if you have any skills you feel could share please contact me via the website.
