A project aimed at providing young people in Hailsham with organised outings on Friday evenings, continues to go from strength to strength, Hailsham Town Council has said.

The council said the project for 12-17 year olds, has a range of activities confirmed for the months ahead.

The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is funded by The Safer Wealden Partnership and Hailsham Town Council, works in partnership with Targeted Youth Support and Hailsham Community College to help create alternative recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings.

A variety of carefully planned activities for young people have been planned for the FNP throughout the remainder of summer and into the early autumn including windsurfing and sailing at Spray Water Sports Centre, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure Centre, snowboarding and dry-slope skiing at Knockhatch, LaserQuest at

the David Lloyd Centre, two-wheeled activity at Segway Unleashed in Godstone and roller skating at Skate World.

Youth project coordinator Andy Joyes said young people have been very happy with the Friday Night Project program of outings.

He said: “The FNP offers young people the chance to take part in a diverse range of recreational activities and, without these activities, many of young people would have very little to do on Friday evenings.

“I know that those who attended the various outings and events organised by the Square Youth Café enjoyed them tremendously and all outings were attended by staff members to ensure their safety and well-being at all times.

“I would encourage all young people in Hailsham to take advantage of the outings Which are available to them and to get involved in the activities.”

All young people in Hailsham and surrounding areas aged 12 to 17 are welcome to attend outings organised for the Friday Night Project.
