Activities for Hailsham's Young People This Winter (11/12/17)

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 funded by Hailsham Town Council and the Safer Wealden Partnership, works in partnership with other organisations such as 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 forthcoming winter months.

A variety of activities have been planned from December through to March next year including dry-slope skiing, tobogganing and Ringo Run at Knockhatch Ski Centre, with skiing lessons for available for beginners, as well as LaserQuest at Knockhatch Adventure Park and ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure Centre.

Other activities include trampolining at the Urban Jump Centre in Heathfield, as well as abseiling and zip wire at the PGL Centre in Windmill Hill.

Nina Santi, Deputy 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.”

“Thanks must go to all Friday Night Project partners, in addition to the Safer Wealden Partnership for its funding from the very beginning.”

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.
