An event to mark the end of Devizes Youth Centre will be held on Saturday, on The Green, from 1pm to 4pm.

Young people and youth workers past and present are being encouraged to attend to share their memories of the centre and enjoy a barbecue and a DJ.

The youth centre, in Southbroom Road, closed yesterday, after Wiltshire Council decided to make savings.

It will cut the number of youth worker posts from 144 largely part-time roles to 25 full-time posts.

Town councillor Andy Johnson is encouraging voluntary groups to go to the event and discuss providing services to young people in the future.
