The Highbridge Hotel was purchased in 2014 by YMCA Dulverton Group. However, two devastating fires delayed the restoration process. The hotel will provide 23 flats, an on-site café, meeting, conference and consultation rooms  and a large sports centre for the local community.

Offering somewhere for young people to meet and a space for groups working with this age group to run their clubs and activities from.

The Weston Amateur Boxing Club have a permanent designated set-up at the Centre and offer classes and training.

The Cafe, in Weston town centre opposite Grove Park,  is open 6 days a week after school and on Saturdays and weekday daytimes during school holidays.  It provides a safe space where young people can socialise, meet with friends and take part in a range of activities.
