History

The site of the new Youth Centre used to be the Police Station until it was closed by Gloucestershire Constabulary in 2011. Around the same time, Gloucestershire County Council withdrew funding for the town’s youth activities and sold the former youth building nearby. Through negotiation with the town clerk and county councillor the County Council provided £69,000, part of the proceeds from the sale, for the conversion of the former police premises owned by the Town Trust for a new youth centre. The Town Council and the Youth Liaison Group commenced vigorous additional fundraising.
