THE newest member of staff at a town centre youth club says he’s looking forward to taking youngsters to Snowdonia later this year.

Piers Brown, 34, of Hilltop Road, Berkhamsted, began working at the Swan Youth Centre in the town’s High Street after leaving his previous job as a salesman.

Piers said: “The job’s just about getting to know people. Some people walk straight up to you and are immediately your friend and with others it takes more time.

“It’s not like your traditional idea of what work is.”

He just took a business driving course so he can take youngsters to Snowdonia this summer and has been working at the club for the past two months.
