We are an informal and friendly youth group based at Westhoughton Youth Club. We are passionate about being green, gardening and improving our local area. We are currently taking part in a creative gardening project linked to improving emotional health.

If you are a young person aged 8-12 and live in Westhoughton or the surrounding areas, and would like to get involved in our green group then we would love to hear from you!
Please contact Rea Rouse, Westhoughton Youth Club Manager at email@example.com for more information about our group.
