Young people in Bewbush will have the chance to get advice on safe sex and condoms when the local youth centre moves into a new £5 million pound building.

Those aged between 11 and 18 will be able to attend drop-in sessions at the facility where they will be able to get guidance on a range of issues such as contraception, including where to buy condoms from to CV writing skills, This is Sussex reports.

The new site, which was funded by Crawley Borough Council, has a youth area, sports hall, cafe and a neighbourhood police base.

Councillor Lenny Walker, cabinet member for leisure and culture, said the building was created "quickly", yet looks "magnificent".

"This place is really going to bring huge benefits to the health and wellbeing here and add to the community spirit which is already so apparent in Bewbush," he added.
