FNP Activities For Young People During Summer Months
Hailsham Town Council’s youth services continue to benefit young people aged 12 to 17, providing them with access to a wide range of opportunities and activities throughout the year.
The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is run by Hailsham Youth Service, works in partnership with organisations such as Hailsham Community College and Knockhatch to help create recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings and will continue to be a feature on their social events calendar during the summer months.
A variety of activities have been planned in the coming weeks including bungee trampolines, jumping pillows and Wave Runner at Knockhatch Adventure Park, as well as badminton, table tennis, dodgeball and an inflatable disco at the James West Community Centre.
Skiing lessons and open ski sessions for this year are scheduled to start on Friday 20th September at Knockhatch Ski Centre, further details of which will be announced nearer the time.
Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at Hailsham Town Council said: “The Friday Night Project activities are organised to build confidence and self-esteem, and to help prevent and reduce boredom and antisocial behaviour among some young people.”
"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 throughout.”
Hailsham Town Council’s youth services, including the Friday Night Project, have recently benefited from the securing of funding from the Safer Wealden Partnership for the purchase of a minibus. The minibus is now available to all local youth groups to hire. Please call 01323 841702 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
