Young People Guernsey given The Hub as new centre

Jane St Pier Mrs St Pier said the new St Peter Port location was 'ideally placed'

Charity Young People Guernsey has found a suitable site from which to offer information and guidance for teenagers.

The Hub will be opened by patron Lynda Walker on Cour de Bordier, in St Peter Port, on 7 September.

The charity will pay a £1 annual lease to owner Long Port for up to 10 years.

Jane St Pier, who chairs the charity, said the company had "essentially delivered us the keys to a bespoke centre at no cost".

She described the new venue as "light, spacious and ideally placed" and said the charity, which was founded in 2010, was in a good position to make the best use of it.

"We have raised £145,000 to date, which equates to about 18 months of running costs," she said.

Barnardo's has been commissioned to provide advice, information and guidance that children aged 11-16 will be able to get from The Hub.
