Berkshire Youth were delighted to welcome distinguished guests, funders and supporters to the Waterside Centre, Newbury on the evening of 20 October for an Open Evening. 

Guests were dazzled by the opening reception by VoxFresh, singing a collection of songs for our guests. As well as tours of the building, guests were invited to talk to young people and staff about the amazing opportunities Waterside has created for young people in West Berkshire.

David Seward spoke of the value youth work has for young people in the current climate and how this building was our pledge to young people, that they are valued and we want to support them to be the best they can be.

Roger Smee MBE spoke to guests of the journey we have been on to get to this stage and the challenges that face us to maintain facilities, staffing and programmes as we move forward.
