Youth Facilities Survey

Youth Facilities Survey

Published in the May/June 2014 Benwick Bugle

Having attended the meeting prior to the village assembly, although supporting the development of the play park for young children, we are a group of teenagers who feel it would also be beneficial for there to be more  activities for our age group. We understand that a collection of teenagers, either on the streets or in the play park, can seem intimidating  to other members of the community and can be associated with anti-social behaviour.

If there was a venue where we, as teenagers, could meet where we would be safe and have adult support (similar to the Youth Bus which used to come to the village on a weekly basis) we should be able to reduce the amount  of noisy gatherings of teenagers. This in turn, would make areas of the village, such as the play park, more attractive to families with young children. With this in mind, we would really appreciate your support by  completing an online survey.

Adults and especially parents of teenagers please visit:

If you are a secondary schoolstudent in the village, we also need your opinions so please complete the survey

If you have any questions or queries about this cause feel free to email me at
