The Easingwold Youth Council (an NYY Member Club) has been successful in the introduction of an outdoor table tennis table in the memorial park. The group, which includes both members of Easingwold Town Council and local young people, has had its first proposal passed by the Recreation and Open Spaces Committee. The initiative hopes to aid local businesses, and promote healthy lifestyles, by introducing an easy to access and use table tennis table in Easingwold. This will be situated in the memorial park, and will be available for everyone to use. The group is hoping that local shops will be able to provide paddles and balls for the use of the table, or you can bring your own from home. The youth group is also looking forward to putting forward other ideas, such as a basketball hoop, tree planting, football netting and more. We have also ensured that spaces around Easingwold have red boxes available, providing free sanitary products in order to tackle period poverty. The group is also looking for new members, it’s a great way to meet like-minded young people, and get your voice heard within Easingwold and learn how local politics functions. If you are interested, have any questions or ideas you can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or you can email to get involved. We look forward to seeing what our new members can offer, as well as what we can achieve in the future!
