The Lounge Venue is Now Confirmed
The lease on the new premises has now been signed and we have the keys to the new venue.
We would like to say a big thank you to Jo Herbert at Hortons Solicitors in Barnt Green for providing the legal services for the conveyancing, at no charge. Also thank you to Caroline Gentleman from ACT's management committee who has done a brilliant job coordinating this.
We have got a busy few weeks ahead of us, as we get the lounge up and running:
Wednesday 3rd November
We are having an open evening for young people so they can be the first to come and see the new premises and continue to work with the youth leaders and ACT committee to plan out the space and choose styles, furniture and colour schemes
Thursday 4th November.
We have our first Advisory Board meeting which will start with a visit to the current youth club at the social club, to meet some of the young people and then on to The Square to see our new premises. We have had a tremendous response to our request for volunteers for the Advisory Board and we are very grateful to those who have volunteered and we're looking forward to working with this group.
Week commencing 8th Novemeber.
We will begin work on our premises. Some of the work will have to be funded by ACT, but our budget is really tight so we are hoping local businesses will be willing to 'sponsor ' us and offer their services either free of charge or at a discounted rate in return for some good PR and some very grateful young people. Some businesses have already come forward, please see the with thanks page for more details.
