http://oceanadesigns.net/the-101/ ROSE Hill Junior Youth Club has been handed almost £4,000 in funding by councillors after increasing popularity put strains on its services.

Rose Hill and Iffley city councillors Ed Turner and Michele Paule each donated £1,000 to the youth club last month from their ward budgets and Litttlemore city councillor Gill Sanders has donated about £2,000.

The youth club, which is regularly attended by about 80 young people from Rose Hill and the surrounding area, had to start running sessions twice a week last September to cope with demand.

Its numbers trebled between 2012 and 2013 and are expected to increase further after the new funding was announced.
