POLICE are hoping a new youth club will help cut anti-social behaviour in Cobholm.

The youth club, set up by three local mums, opens its doors on Wednesday and will give youngsters a place to go in the evenings.

Jade Brackley, Michelle Teasdale and Dawn Ryan, have worked with the Cobholm and Southtown Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) in setting up the club and the response from local youths has been “overwhelmingly positive”.

Police community support officer Abbey Horton is on the youth club committee and said: “The mums have done a fantastic job, members of the team really feel it will help drive down anti-social behaviour in the area. I see it as a very positive way to engage with the young community of Cobholm. Currently there are very few activities in the area, we fully support it and will be having regular inputs to the club, and the mums deserve all the praise they get.”
