Neston Community & Youth Centre

Burton Road, Neston, CH64 9RE
0151 336 7805

NCYC on Burton Road replaced the old Neston Youth Club after 30 years of use by the Youth and the Community of the Neston area. The land in Burton Road was donated in the 1960’s for benefit of people under the age of 21.
Since closure of the youth club, research by the Neston Market Town Initiative (MTI) revealed the need for this facility. In response, the MTI, in partnership with Ellesmere Port & Neston Borough Council, Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and Neston Community Youth Centre Ltd (NCYC) planned this new building. Substantial financial support was also received from The Fair Share Trust, Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd. (WREN), Connexions and Project Rural Matters (Cheshire Constabulary). The new Centre is managed by NCYC Ltd, a Company Limited by Guarantee and a registered charity.

CAN Group and NCYC to Join Forces

CAN Group and Neston Community Youth Centre (NCYC) have announced they are to join forces in April in a move that will enhance the work of both community organisations, and increase opportunities for residents in Neston and the surrounding areas.

CAN Group’s Project Manager, Zaria Shreef, is moving into the community centre in March and will continue the work of CAN from there, managing well-established projects such as Neston Angels and Neston Flicks. From April, she will become NCYC’s new Community Activities Co-ordinator, working with the NCYC team to further develop community projects and opportunities for volunteers, such as Wildlife Connections, a Chester Zoo-led conservation project.

“CAN Group has been operating in Neston since 2005, and has delivered events and projects enjoyed by thousands of people, always on a very low budget thanks to the huge input of volunteers,” said Zaria, “ With funding growing increasingly strapped, the move to NCYC is a natural fit. We have always worked closely together but now we can share resources, volunteers, and expertise, and help NCYC expand its community development role. It’s a very exciting time for community activity in Neston!”

Gareth Prytherch, Centre Manager for NCYC said, “NCYC is in a strong position to support CAN Group in this move. The centre has charitable status, is operating at a profit, and CAN Group’s activities fit the community strand of our Strategic Plan for the next five years. With the Plan’s other two strands of Youth Work and Adult Learning, there will be lots of cross-pollination, with signposting between all three aspects of our work creating a better service for users of the centre.”

With the move of CAN’s Project Manager to NCYC, the Board of Directors of CAN Group will be closing the company within the year. Over its lifetime, CAN Group delivered activities such as Neston Lights ‘n’ Lanterns, the Schools Art Project and CH64 Big Lunch to nearly 30,000 local residents, with the support of Cheshire West and Chester and Neston Town Councils for many years. CAN would like to thank both councils, local members, volunteers, and all the many organisations who have supported and worked with CAN over the years.
