A cafe, not a club

Posted on March 08 2011 at 6:35:16

While I am sure the opening of The Lounge is a positive step for the general community of the village of Alvechurch, please do not let your readers be confused as to who is benefiting from this venture.

While the initial inspiration may have been to provide a meeting place for teenagers, this is not what has happened.

There is a café which opens two evenings a week for 13 to14-year-olds – this is not a youth club. The older teenagers, 16 to 17 years old, who were the ones being complained about at the MUGA, still have nowhere to go and nothing to do.

Lots of people may have put in a lot of work to open a café – a youth club it is not.

S Lambert, Alvechurch
