BLYTH’S Silx Teen Bar has landed a lottery grant of £8,600 to pay for the reintroduction of its Saturday sessions for youngsters.

The money, from the Big Lottery Fund, will enable the Church Street centre to pay for the sessions for the next year.

Senior youth worker Jackie Long said: “This is great news for all the young people at Silx and in the Blyth area as there is definitely a need for this provision.”
