The Chairman and Chief Executive of Hampshire Youth Options Mark Radcliffe and Mark Dixon - invited local councillors to the Scott Centre in Andover, to see the recent refurbushment work there. Sir George formally re-opened the Centre by cutting a ribbon.
"The Scott Centre has been providing a high quality After School Club in Andover for 20 years -long before wrap-around schools became fashionable. They also run an active holiday club and many parents and children owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Hampshire Youth Options for providing this facility."
"The Centre needed some restoration and modernisation and they raised £25,000 for this from the Headley Trust and the Hampshire Youth Offending Team. The refurbished Centre is a tremendous resource for Andover and I know that it will continually to be intensively used. And I pay tribute to the hard-working staff who manage such a wide range of activity at the Centre."
