I WAS very sorry to read that Councillor Derek Killingworth was having to give up his role as Chairman of the Trustees of Bewdley Youth Cafe, through ill health.

The youth cafe is a marvellous place for the children to go when the schools finish at 3-30pm, until 5pm or 6pm, when their parents get home from work.

But I can’t understand why he needs to get up at the crack of dawn to supply breakfast for the children.

Surely their parents could make a nice family breakfast in the comfort of their own homes before they go to work, rather than send the children out in the cold and wet at least an hour earlier to get it at the youth cafe.
