Frinton: £1k cashpot for action day legacy boost
6:00pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
A £1,000 cashpot has been put aside to boost the legacy of a successful youth action day.
The event brought more than 50 clubs and organisations together in an activities showcase in a bid to get youngsters off the streets and taking part in something positive.
It was hailed a huge success, with more than 4,500 people attending on the day.
Now organisers are looking to build on that success and Frinton and Walton Town Council has put £1,000 aside to boost those efforts.
Councillor Alec Moss said: “We have got bags of ideas on how to keep the spirit of the event alive and keep youngsters interested in the clubs.
“We need to keep progressing and now we want to target those who didn’t attend the action day or didn’t join a club."
Some plans to keep the legacy going include using social media websites to get more youngsters involved in clubs.
