The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is funded by Hailsham Town Council and the Safer Wealden Partnership, works in partnership with organisations such as Hailsham Community College and Knockhatch to create fun recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings and will continue to be a feature on their social events calendar during the forthcoming winter months.
A variety of activities have been planned through to March next year including dry-slope skiing and tobogganing at Knockhatch Ski Centre (with ski lessons for available for beginners).
Other activities include inflatable assault course events at the James West Community Centre, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure and indoor activities at Knockhatch Adventure Park, as well as abseiling and zip wire at the PGL Centre in Windmill Hill.
Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at Hailsham Town Council said: “The Friday Night Project outings are organised to help prevent and reduce antisocial behaviour and boredom and give young people opportunities for achievement. They’re guaranteed to have fun and there’s bound to be something for everyone.”
"Through organising such activities, young people are provided with opportunities to make new friends and develop a broad range of team-building skills that will help create a strong foundation for their future. I would encourage them to take advantage of the outings that are available to them and get involved.”
Young people in Hailsham and surrounding areas aged between 12 and 17 years are welcome to attend outings organised by the Town Council’s youth project team.
