History of MY Lodge

In 1990, the Nottinghamshire Association of Boys' and Keystone Clubs launched a fundraising campaign to build a training and accommodation block next to their sports hall. The goal was to raise £125,000. By early July, they had raised enough funds and awarded Loach Builders the contract to construct the "New Keystone Lodge," which would sleep 26 people in dormitories and small twin bed rooms. The ground floor was fitted for use by disabled people, and a large meeting room/lounge equipped with AV facilities was included.

 

(Below) Senior members are the first to use the newly completed Keystone Lodge Accommodation Unit  - March 1991.

The first official use of the new building was held on February 26, 1991, and the first residential weekend course was held from March 1-3, 1991. The new accommodation unit was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester on April 18, 1991, and was renamed "The Maurice Youdell Lodge" in 2000 to recognize the long service of Maurice Youdell MBE, who had overseen the fundraising and construction of the building. The Lodge was designed to benefit young people, and other youth organizations in Nottinghamshire were invited to use the facility.

MY Lodge is owned and operated by Nottinghamshire Clubs for Young People, a not for profit organisation that works with young people in Nottinghamshire.
