Kerry McCarthy Labour MP for Bristol East
It was great to visit Hillfields Youth Centre earlier this week. As well as talking to Creative Youth Network about current activities, I did a walkabout with local residents, discussing problems in the area such as visible drug-dealing and lack of support for vulnerable people.
I also met with a group of 13-16 year olds who play basketball at the centre on Monday nights, and are keen to use the centre on other nights if funding can be found. I’ve promised to do what I can to try to identify alternative sources of funds so the Centre can carry on doing great work.
