Primary school children in Year 6 (ages 10 and 11) are now invited to attend after-school club and afternoon sessions, which take place at the Square Youth Café in Hailsham on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 3.15pm to 5pm. Entry is free.

Evening sessions at the Square Youth Café, which are also free to enter, cater for young people Years 9 to 12 (ages 13-17) and take place Monday to Friday from 6.45pm to 9pm.

Young people in Hailsham can enjoy a wide range of activities at ‘The Square’, 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 for the coming months, to encourage even more young people through the doors of the centre.

Activities taking place include crafts, quizzes, pool tournaments and cookery sessions where young people can learn how to prepare meal recipes.

“The Square Youth Café aims to provide a service to young people regardless of background, gender or culture,” said Andy Joyes, Hailsham Town Council’s Youth Project Coordinator.

“They can expect a safe, supportive, fun and non–judgmental environment. All activities are supervised by staff members to ensure their safety and well-being at all times.”

Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman 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 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 summer holiday!”
