A CAMPAIGN for a youth centre in Seaton has been launched by Councillor Sophie O'Connell.
The town council recommended starting up the Seaton Youth Needs a Centre (SYNC) project during the monthly meeting on Monday, January 18.
The council also proposed setting up a Seaton youth group to find out what young people want in the town.
Cllr O'Connell said: "As we all know, in August 2006, Seaton lost its only dedicated youth facility.

"There have been many attempts to try and regain some of the facilities that were lost.
"There was a campaign to raise funds to reopen the centre. This proved to be an impossible task due to East Devon District Council's decision to only grant a year by year lease."

She said there had been youth work in the town, such as the police cadets, Big Fish Caf� and Grove Zero, but not enough to stimulate youngsters.
Mayor Sandra Semple called for funding - questioning why Devon County Council was supplying Colyton's youth centre, with two youth workers, while they got none.
