Horsham’s Snack Wagon gets set to hit the streets with a new look and new name

Horsham’s Snack Wagon has undergone a new look - and been given a new name - as it gets set to hit the streets.

The vehicle - manned by youth workers - is now known as a Mobile Community Hub and will be visiting areas in the town offering help, advice and free snacks to young people aged 13 - 18.

Horsham District Council worked with sixth form college Collyer’s and local vehicle graphics company PVL UK to create the former Snack Wagon’s new look.

The vehicle has for a number of years been a key component in the Horsham area providing a range of detached youth work in a variety of settings.

A council spokesman said: “With the easing of Covid 19 restrictions, the newly liveried vehicle will provide a safe environment for young people to gather with their friends, grab a free bite to eat or drink and chat with our youth workers from 4The Youth who can provide advice and resources on lots of issues, particularly those generated by the pandemic.”

The new look design for the vehicle was created by Collyer’s art student Fuzzy Isaacs who won a design competition alongside fellow students at the college.

Youth Worker Paula Lintott from 4TheYouth said: “I am looking forward to getting back on the road in the Mobile Community Hub and supporting our young people at this time.

“Our conversations often turn to their school situation and how they are finding it. Also young people’s relationships with friends and other people in their lives are popular topics.

“We are often a sounding board for their frustrations. “
