Birstall Youth Cafe Closure

The Youth Cafe, which has provided a well-used and popular service to the young people of Birstall, has not been able to open its doors since March 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions which are still in place today some nine months later.During this time the youth workers have moved onto pastures new and the Parish Council thank them for their hard work and dedication to the young people of varying age groups in Birstall over the last twelve years.At the Council meeting on 14 Dec councillors accepted that it is currently not feasible to recruit and interview for new youth workers as the facility is unlikely to be able to reopen for the foreseeable future.It was with sadness and regret that the Parish Councillors took the decision to officially close the Youth Cafe and not to make any budget provision for the next financial year.
