Autumn Activities for Young People at the Square Youth Cafe

Council News & Services, Youth Services

 

Young people in Hailsham aged 11 to 13 can enjoy a wide range of activities on weekday afternoons throughout the autumn months at the Square Youth Café, the Town Council’s flagship youth facility, situated at 1 Market Square.

The Square Youth Café team has organised a varied line-up of free and low-cost activities designed to liven up the autumn season and encourage even more through the doors of the youth café.

Activities taking place include table tennis, pool, and console/video games, as well as cooking sessions where young people can learn how to prepare food recipes. Computers and free wi-fi are also available.

Afternoon sessions at the Square Youth Café take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 3.15pm to 5pm.

The Square Youth Cafe evening sessions are also free to enter, cater for young people aged 13 to 17 and take place Monday to Friday from 6.45pm to 9pm.

Full details can be found on the Hailsham Youth Service website.

Andy Joyes, Youth Project Coordinator at the Town Council said young people have been happy with the wide range of activities in recent years, many of which were keenly anticipated: “We want the autumn months to be productive and fun for young people and I know that those who take part in the various activities organised by The Square and its project partners enjoy them tremendously.”

“The Square Youth Café aims to provide a safe environment for young people regardless of background, gender or culture. All activities are supervised by staff members to ensure their safety and well-being at all times.”

Town Mayor Councillor Paul Holbrook commented: “Parents can be confident that the Square Youth Café provides a safe environment for our local young people, giving them a place to socialise in the afternoons, evenings and during school holidays by organising trips away and various other leisure activities.

“The youth project team has established a successful and ongoing service for young people in Hailsham and there’s no reason for young people to find themselves bored during the autumn months!”
