Singer, Ed Sheeran has revealed that he is planning on converting a former police station in his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk into a youth centre.
According to sources, the 23-year-old singer has invested £1.6 million into the construction project.
Ed Sheeran spoke of his excitement for the youth centre recently and said he discovered his own love of music at his local youth centre before it got sold on.
”I’m really excited about the project. I had a youth club from when I was 12 when I grew up which did a battle of the bands every week and that’s where I and other bands started playing. Then the land the club was on was sold… and I just went off to London and did shows instead. Now there’s no youth club and nothing to do so it’s a bad situation.”
But Sheeran also admitted that the youth club will factor into his future retirement plans.
“The plan when I get older is to end up running that (the youth club) – so I have pretty much planned my retirement.”
Awww that’s sweet Ed, but we don’t think you will be retiring for a long time yet.
