GWA Concerned About Laguna Youth Club



The Gibraltar Women’s Association (GWA) says it is concerned that plans to “hastily rush ahead” with building works for a new school without affording due care and consideration will leave another section of our community without the valuable provision of youth club and playground for an unnecessary prolonged period.A spokesperson said: “The Laguna Youth Club provides a highly regarded service for the youth in this area. The playground is the only one in the vicinity and in an age where focus needs to be provided on diet and exercise this facility needs to be available. Increasing childhood obesity and all the health conditions that this leads to, will be exacerbated without providing sufficient outdoor facilities for the younger members of our society and embarking them on a healthy lifestyle choice. Intelligent planning and sensitive infrastructure will enable both aspects to be protected whilst provided a much-needed resource to the vulnerable and minimal disruption to an estate which has been subjected to protracted building in the recent past.”
