Youth activities are priority for council in Hailsham


Activities for young people in Hailsham will be made a priority for 2014, the town council has said.

Hailsham Town Council said youth services continue to go from strength to strength and young people will have access to a wide range of outings and activities throughout the year.

The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is funded by the Safer Wealden Partnership and Hailsham Town Council, works in partnership with other organisations such as Targeted Youth Support and Hailsham Community College to help create alternative recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings. 
It is set to continue the activities throughout spring and summer, the council said.

Last week the Express reported how a variety of activities for young people have been planned for the FNP, including wind surfing and sailing at Spray Water Sports in Eastbourne, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure Centre, snowboarding and dry-slope skiing at Knockhatch Centre, LaserQuest at the David Lloyd Centre, ice skating at the Guildford Spectrum and roller discos at Roller World.

Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at Hailsham Town Council, said: “Leisure activities organised by the town council and its partners offer young people the chance to take part in a diverse range of recreational activities.

“The Friday Night Project, in particular, is a good example of partnership in the community working at its best and I’d like to express my thanks to all project partners, in addition to the Safer Wealden Partnership for their generous funding from the very beginning.”

All young people aged between 12 and 17 in Hailsham and surrounding areas are welcome to attend outings organised by the town council’s youth project team.
