I have today met with members of the Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services (SCVYS) who will be carrying out the consultation process with local young people. Firstly they will determine whether or not there are sufficient numbers of young people who would use a BMX track to justify the expenditure, and secondly to indicate other possible alternatives that would be more widely used, if the BMX track does not prove popular.
SCYVS will be contacting Moorside High School to begin the process when the school reopens after the half-term. I have asked that this process should begin and be completed as soon as possible to curb any further delay.
Anyone wishing to put their views forward are invited to use the Contact Us page or leave a comment.
Kenn Griffiths – Chairman Werrington Parish Council.
Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services (SCVYS) was established in 1982 by the larger traditional voluntary youth services operating in the County, including Scouts, Girlguiding, Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, Boys and Girls Brigades. The network provided a useful way of sharing information and best practice, coming together for training or networking and to lobby local elected members over different issues of interest and concern.
In 2011 SCVYS was commissioned by Staffordshire County Council to deliver support to the youth sector. SCVYS, now a charitable company, matured whilst more than meeting the initial contractual requirements.
