Hornsea’s new youth club was born in spectacular fashion at the Parish Hall (upstairs) on Wednesday 12th October. Large numbers of young people came to sign up for the sessions which will run weekly from 6.30 pm to 7.45 pm for Primary aged children and from 7.45 to 9pm for Secondary age children.
After the Mayor cut the ribbon for the official opening, the young people engaged enthusiastically in a wide range of activities organised by youth workers Harry and Vicki, together with volunteers Amanda Miller, Neil Barker, Nathan Eastwood and the youth reps Lewis and Josh (secondary) and Rosie and Ruby (primary). The activities included pool, table football, table tennis, arts and crafts, a rowing machine and play station. There was also a tuck shop handsomely stocked with sweets as well as fruit from the Community Orchard donated by Home Grown Hornsea.
Mayor Lee Walton said “I was delighted to be invited to opening of the new youth club and would like to thank St Nicholas’ Church, the YFS service, our Youth Workers and volunteers who have worked together to create this new provision. The Town Council is keen to continue to support the club having helped establish a strong foundation on which the club can grow”.
Phil Jackson –Participation & Partnerships Strategic Manager with East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Youth & Family Support (YFS) service commented “We are delighted that a new Youth Club is opening in Hornsea. The YFS service is keen to offer its continued support to the club following an award of one of our Positive Activity Grants. We along with all partners would like to wish the youth club every success in the future”
