Kevan Jones, Member of Parliament for North Durham, will be joining Councillor Simon Henig, Leader of Durham County Council in officially opening the new Pelton Youth Project, Room 14, on Friday afternoon.

Room 14 was developed through a partnership between Durham County Council and Pelton Community Centre, with funding from the government’s Youth Task Force and Durham County Council, including £20,000 from local Councillor Jim Cordon.

Mr. Jones said “I am very pleased to officially open Room 14 with Councillor Henig.

“This excellent new project proves what can be achieved through the hard work of partnerships in the community. Durham County Council, Pelton Community Centre, youth workers, other partners and the young people who use the facility can be rightly proud of Room 14.

“I have no doubt that this project will be a huge success in engaging young people in Pelton and across the local area.”

The official opening starts at 3.30pm on Friday 22nd January at Pelton Youth and Community Centre
