Youth Provision on the Stafford Orchard

Following representations from young people in the village, the Council entered into discussions with them about the provision of a basketball practice area and a facility for skateboarding and bikes. The Council allocated an area of the Stafford Orchard for both facilities and included a youth shelter in the plans following receipt of a very favourable Thames Valley Police report on the value of these specially designed structures.

The youth club took on board the design of a half-pipe ramp which was eventually constructed by a local expert and funded by the Parish and Borough Councils, with a donation from Quorn Baptist Church.

The facilities have been widely welcomed by young people in the village and are much used.
