Casting vote seals funding for Lockeridge Youth Club

After a somewhat heated debate, the Marlborough Area Board (November 6) awarded funding to the fledgling Lockeridge Youth Club.

The Club was one of the Local Youth Network's pilot schemes earlier in the year.  There were some doubts expressed about the level of commitment to provide match funding and volunteer support.

The Area Board funding will include some time with Innov8Sportz who will train volunteer.

The award of £3,820 was made on the casting vote of the Area Board Chairman, Councillor James Sheppard.

Two members of the Board had wanted to award half the money, with the other half dependent on how the first six months proceeded.

From her experience with Marlborough Youth Club, Town Mayor Councillor Lisa Farrell made a powerful plea to award the full amount: "Lockeridge is a small village, we should support them - six months is not long enough to establish a club."
