Ward Councillors John Prince and Barbara Murray and the Lord Mayor are providing support to the consortia.

Councillor Murray said: “We are particularly pleased that Riverside Housing is taking a lead role in this new initiative.  The filming went well, with thanks to Sophie and Frank from Riverside for all their work pulling the project together, also to parents, volunteers and youth workers.

The young people were really pleased that the Lord Mayor visited and they were so well behaved, enthusiastic and friendly. He played table tennis with some of the boys and it was very touching when they came over to say goodbye and thank him for the game.”
