SIR - Your article about the by-election in Welham Green (WHT, January 9) printed comments from a female parishioner who hoped the new councillor would deal with youth issues here.

I would like to inform the residents of Welham Green that Parish Councillor Peter Hastings is chairman of the Welham Green As One group which is presently working to enhance the local community. As part of this the Welham Green Youth Project has been revived and is now chaired by Helen Shearer. This is working with local young people to address behaviour issues and to plan and provide facilities that they would value and use.

Although this group has its own agenda, the North Mymms Parish Council is fully supporting their endeavours and is prepared to listen to their proposals and help where possible.

At the invitation of our chairman Keith Pieri, several young people are due to attend our council meeting on January 30 to discuss these matters further.

Anyone interested in helping in any way with these efforts can contact Mr Hastings on 07974170431 or peterh@ese.uk.net

Josephine Schettino, Clerk To The Council.
