I spoke to Andy Jarvis and the CEO of the Exeter YMCA on Friday evening in the Pannier Market.
It appears that the YMCA were successful in their second attempt to get funding from Devon County Council. Although it’s not as much as they needed (£10,000 rather than £15,000), it will enable them to run the Youth Resource Centre in South Molton. So, subject to dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on the legal paperwork, they should be running the centre from January.
Apart from Andy Jarvis and the YMCA, thanks should also go to our local County Councillor, Jeremy Yabsley, who has done a great deal to ensure that this initiative could go ahead.
