Activities for Young People in Run Up to Christmas

Youth Services

Friday Night Project - open ski activities 

Hailsham Youth Service continues to go grow, providing a range of opportunities and activities for young people in the town between the ages of 11-17.

A variety of activities for young people have been planned for the Friday Night Project throughout the autumn months and run up to Christmas including cinema evenings at the Hailsham Pavilion Theatre, a Youth night at the James West Community Centre, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure, activities at Knockhatch Adventure Park, Ringo Tobogganing at Knockhatch Ski Centre and trampolining at Urban Jump.

The Friday Night Project, which is funded and managed by the Town Council’s youth service division – Hailsham Youth Service – works in partnership with Hailsham Community College, Freedom Leisure and Knockhatch to help create alternative recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings, will also continue to be a feature in young people’s social events calendar for the remainder of the year.

“The Friday Night Project gives young people an opportunity to experience challenges of different recreational activities and provide them with opportunities to socialise and boost self-esteem and well-being. I’m confident it will continue to be successful well into the future,” said Andy Joyes, Youth Service Manager at Hailsham Town Council.

“The Friday Night Project is a classic example of partnership in the community, and I’d like to thank my colleagues at Hailsham Youth Service, Knockhatch, Freedom Leisure and Hailsham Community College for all the support with these events.”

Town Mayor Councillor Paul Holbrook commented: “Young people always look forward to various outings which make up part of Hailsham Youth Service’s provision and are always keen to take advantage of the many opportunities being offered by our youth worker team.”

“It is a great achievement that Hailsham Town Council, Hailsham Youth Service and project partners have come together to give young people another opportunity to engage in really exciting recreational activities.”
