In 2008 a questionaire was sent around every home in Willingham and the results of the survey were used to produce the Willingham Village Plan. To help to make the plan work Willingham Action Group, (WAG) was established to work alongside Willingham Parish Council and South Cambs District Council.
One of the key areas of need which came out of the survey was for more youth services and facilities for our growing number of young people. A sub group of WAG was established to hold further public consultation and develop the ideas and proposals.
Willingham Originalz, a weekly youth club night, was first run in 2010 and quickly demonstrated the need for this kind of provision as well as a more permanenet home for youth services. In 2010, the sub group became Willingham Youth Trust - a charitable trust with a Board of Trustees - in order to attract funds to run the youth club and to provide a building.
