Proposed mobile phone mast installation at Frith Youth Centre – Press release

Mast goes ahead
The Frith Youth Centre Trustees have agreed in principle to sign the contract with CILT for the mobile phone mast subject to further negotiation. The Trustees realise this will disappoint those who are unhappy about the mast, but having considered carefully the claims of the campaigners, the Trustees have concluded the interests of The Frith Youth Centre and the wider community are best served by signing the contract.

In reaching the decision, considerable time has been spent considering the evidence relating to phone masts and health. Reputable independent research carried out over many years has consistently shown no need for concern about the health effects of mobile phone masts. Trusted bodies such as Cancer Research UK, NHS Choices, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation have carefully considered the available research and all concluded that there is no convincing scientific evidence that emissions from mobile phones cause adverse health effects although monitoring of long term effects should continue as a precaution. Also radio wave exposure from a phone mast is over a hundred times less than the International Guidelines and is much less than that emitted by a mobile phone.

The Trustees accept that the mast is not a thing of beauty. However, the Trustees consider the claims of the visual impact by campaigners are overstated. They would point out that from many angles the mast will be screened by the trees around Bussage Pleasure Ground, and that elsewhere the backdrop of trees for the mast will mitigate its visual impact. Further, if the mast is not on the Frith Youth Centre site, then it is highly likely it will be built elsewhere in Bussage or Brownshill.

A paper evaluating the anti-mast campaigners’ health claims can be found here.

Community Cafe at FYC

 

The centre also plays a part within the wider local community, offering a Community Cafe on Wednesday mornings, 10.15 to 12 pm organised and staffed by volunteers, selling tea, coffee and cakes at a modest price.  All the facilities of the centre are available for users, free of charge.  This includes table tennis, pool etc.

We are keen for people to come along and use the cafe and are also looking for people
who will volunteer to do the occasional shift of making tea etc.

All ages are welcome, as are dog walkers, who might like to call in for sustenance at the end of their walk.  There is lots of space for young children to run around, and a reasonably safe garden area at the back of the Centre.  We  also supply table games such as cards, dominoes etc if anyone is interested.  Please come along and support this community venture, a chance for all ages to get to know each other.

All proceeds go to the Centre and we are truly grateful to the generous people who run it.

Classes and Private Hirings

There is also a variety of other activities for adults and children, such as ballet, tap, modern and jazz classes for children, music sessions for pre-school children and Pilates for adults.  Room hire is £7, £10 and £16 dependent upon requirements.  Facilities such as table tennis, pool, table games such as cards and chess are included in the hire charge of the games room.
If you’re interested in using the FYC for your class or club, please get in touch (see contact details below).  The centre is situated in Brownshill.

We are always looking for volunteers for both for the Management Committee and to help with club activities. Contact Teresa at frithyouthcentre@hotmail.com or ring 01453 887204, if you would like to join us.
