OnSide was recently joined by special visitors from across the Irish Sea, to learn a bit more about our Youth Zone model.
The Mayor of Newtownabbey Borough Council, Alderman Billy Webb and his colleagues embarked on a journey to Bolton to spend a couple of days with OnSide, to gain a more detailed understanding of how a Youth Zone works and experience the Bolton Lads and Girls Club, which our model is based on.
With two days jam packed of presentations, club visits and group discussions, the team from Newtownabbey were able to take away information about the key principles of developing a 21st Century Youth Zone and what impact it can have on a local area.
Listen to Mayor Billy Webb about why he felt it important to visit OnSide and what he will be taking away with him:
