This is a brief report on a significant number of changes that have been carried out in the recent months.
- The electricity supply has been replaced - now you can actually boil a kettle without affecting the lights and heating.
- Faulty lighting around the building and in the toilets has been replaced
- Repairs have been carried out to the Football Arena, but there is still concern about safety of the flooring.
- CCTV and external lighting has been improved.
- Heating/cooling has been installed for the first time.
- The scout's shed has been removed.
- The brick shed has a new roof.
- Hot water is now provided in the kitchen and boys/girls toilets.
- The boys toilet has auto-flush on the urinals
- Thanks to the Community Payback scheme the inside and outside of the youth centre has been re-decorated.
- There has been a clear-out of rubbish and broken equipment, but more to do.
- Emergency lighting has been checked and some additional units installed.
- Lighting in the main hall has been replaced.
- Do have any equipment sitting around that could be used by the Youth Club. Scalextric Digital for example.
- After advertising the role of a Lead Youth Worker to manage the Brimp - the council agreed to appoint Zoe McCall, on a part-time basis, to help manage the Brimp and work with the volunteers and youth to protect and enhance the club and its facilities.
- Zoe would like to see the youth and other volunteers helping to identify the equipment and resources required.
- Contact has been made with a company who may be able to provide type1 aggregate for the Brimp Access Road's potholes.
- The younger sessions have proved more popular and perhaps they could be extended.
- The parish council has a Youth Committee in place to help support and encourage the Youth Club and put forward suggestions to the council and the youth club as necessary.
- The club is now affiliated to Young Kent.
- What do local youth want from their Youth Club, we want ideas and feedback.
- MORE ADULT HELP IS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT EXTRA ACTIVITIES AND EXTRA SESSIONS

It is recognised that the former youth club had done a lot to develop and secure the Brimp and provide a youth club over many years, but they have decided that they cannot continue. The parish council have always recognised the need for a youth facilities and moved quickly to create a replacement - The Allhallows Youth Club has re-launched, keep in touch for details.
The success of the Youth Club will depend on local volunteers and the involvement of the youth themselves.
