The new Connections Bus was launched at Histon FC’s recent home game against Hayes and Yeading. Before the game the Histon players joined local youngsters in trying out the new state of the art facilities incorporated into the Bus which provides a mobile youth facility to young people in the surrounding areas.

Councillor Charlie Nightingale, Chair of South Cambs District Council, aided by Stutes Skipper Matt Langston, and joined by Project manager Alan Webb, cut the blue ribbon and officially unveiled the new bus shortly before kick off. Caroline Stenner, a Press Relief trustee, also presented a cheque for £3,000 which will provide a new generator for the bus enabling computers, games consoles and dvd’s to be run more efficiently.

Connections Bus Project manager Alan Webb commented, “We are really excited about this new bus which will enable us to expand our activities to more venues around Cambridgeshire.” Histon’s PR Manager Graham Eales added: “We as a club were really pleased to host the launch of the new Connections Bus and highlight such a valuable resource in the midst of our local community. We are also planning to team up with the Project on various initiatives which boost our links with young people in the surrounding patches.”

Stutes fan Julie Kigira, a voluntary youth worker within the Bus Project is heading up this link. Several youngsters who frequent the Bus on its rounds in the local area attended the game as guests of the Club and some of these chose Lee Smith as man of the Match after his very late strike secured a share of the spoils for the Stutes. Several VIPs from South Cambs District Council were also guests at the game.

A big 'thank you' goes to Hollyoak Veterinary Surgery in Impington for their financial and technical support. Without it this website would not be possible.
