Hailsham Friday Night Project Launches New Website (11/09/17)

Hailsham Town Council has launched a new website where young people and parents in Hailsham and surrounding areas can find out more about the Square Youth Café’s Friday Night Project Activities and sign up to various recreational outings.

The Friday Night Project (FNP), which is funded by Hailsham Town Council and the Safer Wealden Partnership, works with partners including Knockhatch Adventure Park to help create alternative recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings.

The FNP’s new website, which can be found at www.hailsham-fnp.org, provides information on the range of opportunities and activities available for young people in Hailsham aged 11 to 17 and includes a detailed programme of outings and special events scheduled.

The website also features photo and video galleries of FNP activities, both of which will be updated on a regular basis.

Outings planned for the autumn period include open ski sessions and skiing lessons at Knockhatch Ski Centre, go-karting and soft-play at Knockhatch Adventure Park, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure, trampolining at Urban Jump in Heathfield, plus a trip to Thorpe Park.

Early booking of tickets is recommended for the majority of FNP outings, due to popular demand.

“The Friday Night Project gives young people an opportunity to experience the fun and challenge of different recreational activities with the aim of reducing boredom and anti-social behaviour, as well as raising self-confidence and encouraging self-esteem,” said Andy Joyes, youth project coordinator at Hailsham Town Council.

“The new website will enable us to keep young people and parents up-to-date on upcoming activities and opportunities.”

Further details on the Friday Night Project, including the latest activity list/ schedule and booking forms can be found on the FNP website. Alternatively, contact Andy Joyes on 01323 841702 or by email: andy.joyes@hailsham-tc.gov.uk for more information.
