The Lounge gets much needed funds from this years Picnic In The Park

Ugly bugThe Lounge youth project in Alvechurch was one of the beneficiaries of money from the Picnic in the Park held earlier this year.

Parish councillor David Matthews, Picnic in the Park committee member Louise Parkinson and parish councillor Natalie Wise presented a cheque for £558 to Sally Meredith and Dean Morgan of The Lounge – half of the total raised at the event.

Dean, who recently joined The Lounge as lead youth worker, commented: “I’m very happy to be here – I look forward to meeting as many young people as possible and making sure they are aware of the opportunities open to them.”
