Pocklington youth charity YPC elects six new trustees ahead of the opening of its Railway Street office

Pocklington youth charity, YPC, has elected six new trustees as it prepares to open its first dedicated building for young people.

Wednesday, 5th May 2021, 12:20 pm
The YPC building will be a place where young people aged 11-18 can “chat, chill and create” from 4p to 8pm initially on weekdays, with regular activities planned and a café bar available for refreshments.

YPC held its seventh annual general meeting at the end of April where the six were voted in to officially form a management committee alongside existing chair Claire Reading, co-founder and vice-chair Les Slow and Dawn Stone, YPC’s Secretary.

They are Richard Knill, Adam Lea, Jon Pack, Helen Stephenson, Jo Summers and Gerry Wareham.

YPC is relying on volunteers to help run its activities.

YPC is eagerly awaiting the opportunity to open its new facility on Railway Street in Pocklington Town Centre, providing the first long-term investment in youth services in the area since 2013.

The YPC building will be a place where young people aged 11-18 can “chat, chill and create” from 4pm to 8pm initially on weekdays, with regular activities planned and a café bar available for refreshments.

There is the potential to extend opening hours, which will be subject to sufficient numbers of volunteers staffing the building.

YPC Chair Claire Reading said: “Our new trustees bring a superb range of skills and experience to our charity and they have all become involved in different aspects of our new facility at Railway Street, from creative design to advising on our café bar.”
