‘Better relationships’ needed with the youth of Ludlow
8:00am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
YOUNG people in Ludlow feel that they are not being properly listened to by those that run the town.
A call has been made for the building of better relationships with the police and a more understanding approach to the youth of the town. The call came at a meeting of the Ludlow Local Joint Committee.
Richard Morley from the Shropshire Youth Forum and teenager Paul Lewis outlined some of the work being done by young people.
This includes a cycling project at Rockspring and also the collection of litter and other waste.
But the forum says that it wants improved relationships with Ludlow police and a more understanding approach.
This includes a stricter line on the enforcement of speed limits that comes after an incident involving a Ludlow teenager who received serious injuries following an incident with a car that it is alleged had been speeding.
Another issue high on the list of the concerns of young people in the town is the lack of training and job opportunities.
