Hailsham Youth Service continues to benefit young people school years 6 to 11, 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, supported by the Safer Wealden Partnership and funded by Hailsham Town Council, works in partnership with organisations such as Knockhatch, Hailsham Community College and Freedom Leisure to help create fun recreational activities for young people on Friday evenings and will continue to be a feature on their social events calendar throughout July.

A variety of activities have been planned, including outdoor activities at Knockhatch Adventure Park, ten-pin bowling at Freedom Leisure Centre and trampolining at Urban Jump, as well as LaserQuest at the David Lloyd Centre in Eastbourne.

“The Friday Night Project outings are organised to give young people new opportunities to achieve, and to reduce boredom,” said Youth Service Manager Andy Joyes. “Young people are guaranteed to enjoy the variety of activities on offer which they can all get involved in.”

“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.”

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

Town Mayor, Cllr Paul Holbrook commented: “Parents can be confident that Hailsham Youth Service provides a safe environment for our local young people, giving them opportunities to socialise and take part in various activities after school and on weekday evenings, including those activities which make up the Friday Night Project programme.”

“For 25 years now, Hailsham Youth Service has improved the quality of life for local young people in the town and surrounding rural villages. Such benefits have been achieved through the integrated provision of recreation, in addition to opportunities for personal and social development, information and advice.”
