A YOUTH club in the Hatch Warren and Beggarwood area of Basingstoke has been awarded over £600 by the county council – but it is a lot less than the club had bid for.

Hampshire County Council has awarded the youth club, which meets at the Hatch Warren Community Centre, in Longcross Lane, £631 despite an application requesting £1,917.

The money will be used to help fund a new health and wellbeing club for older children.
