Ribble Valley Mayor Coun. Joyce Holgate has officially opened a new multi activity club for the young people of borough and surrounding areas.

Spring into Phab is a young person led voluntary group, set up with the support of Spring into

Action, an East Lancashire based community interest company that provides quality inclusive developmental activities for people with learning disabilities.

The organisation received funding from Lancashire County Council and the BIBAs Foundation to train a group of young people with learning disabilities to set up and run their own enterprise. Six young people that have been working with Spring into Action since late last year have now set up Spring into Phab and are currently offering inclusive dance sessions at St James’ Church, Clitheroe.

When officially opening the club, Coun. Holgate was presented with a gift from the young people, attended a drinks reception and enjoyed the dance sessions, run by charity DanceSyndrome

Director of Spring into Action, Rachael McHugh, said: “The group have worked really hard to set up the club and we have secured funding to enable activities to take place until at least next March. We are now looking for local young people to come along and get involved.”

The sessions are open to people aged eight to 30 and cost £4. They take place Saturday mornings from 10-30 to 11-45 am at St James’ Church, St James’ Street, Clitheroe.
