Members of Gainford and Langton Parish Council have agreed to fund a ten-week pilot scheme, costing £350, to transport 15 young people, by minibus, to The Hub, in Barnard Castle, enabling the youngsters to access facilities at the establishment.

There will be a meeting on Tuesday (March 4), in Gainford village hall, at 7pm, for parents and their children to discuss details of the sessions and provide parental permission.
