Activities for Young People in Hailsham a Priority in 2020
Hailsham Town Council’s youth services continue to go grow, providing a range of opportunities and activities for young people in the town between the ages of 11-17.
The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is funded by Hailsham Town Council and the Safer Wealden Partnership, works in partnership with organisations such as Knockhatch and Hailsham Community College to help create fun recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings and will continue to be a feature on their social events calendar during the winter and spring months.
A variety of activities have been planned in the coming months including dry-slope skiing and Lost World Playbarn indoor play area at Knockhatch Centre (skiing lessons for beginners available) and ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure, as well as abseiling and zip wire at the PGL Centre in Windmill Hill and trampolining at Urban Jump in Heathfield.

Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at Hailsham Town Council said: “The Friday Night Project outings are organised to give young people new opportunities to achieve, and to reduce antisocial behaviour in the town. Young people are guaranteed to enjoy the variety of activities on offer which they can get involved in.”

"Through organising such activities, young people are provided with opportunities to build confidence and develop a broad range of team-building skills that will help create a strong foundation for their future. I would encourage young people to take advantage of the outings that are available to them and get involved.”
“Thanks must go to all Friday Night Project partners, in addition to the Safer Wealden Partnership for its funding from the very beginning.”
