The Bones Youth Club which operates out of the youth centre on Cemetery Road in Gillingham is being forced to close temporarily.
This follows the decision by Matt Hoskins to resign as manager.
Matt, who runs both the Wednesday and Thursday evening sessions of the club, will cease his duties after the session on Thursday 3 October.
In a letter to parents and carers the Bones Youth Club management committee said: ‘We will … need to find a replacement for [Matt] and until this time the youth club will have to remain closed.’
It continued: ‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank Matt for all his hard work and commitment to the club – for this year, in running it, and in previous years as deputy manager.’
In the letter the club points out that the youth club is run entirely by volunteers and entails ‘much commitment and hard work’.
It adds: ‘We are committed to re-opening the club and plan to do so as quickly as possible.’
Matt Hoskins said: ‘The past 4 years at BONES have been some of the best times of my life. I have met some inspiring individuals and have seen first hand just how brilliant the youth of today really is. When it was announced to the young people that I would be leaving it broke my heart. Hopefully I’ll be back before too long because I have such a great time interacting with them.’
