YOUNGSTERS played Nintendo Wii and shot some pool at the official opening of a Saffron Walden youth club.
The Golden Acre Community Centre on Ross Close opened its doors to the town's young people, as well as invited guests, at the launch on Thursday evening.
The youth club, which will run two sessions every Thursday, has been organised by the Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project (SWYOP).
Chairman of the SWYOP and town mayor Cllr Mike Hibbs said he was very pleased with the opening and hoped the club would become a valuable resource for the town's youngsters.
