Two More Grants for Youth Club

HORNSEA YOUTH CLUB Building on the success of the Hornsea Youth Club – there are now over 100 members of primary and secondary school age – Hornsea Town Council has been successful in securing £5,000.00 of further funding. The funding will be utilised to run a second youth club session enabling primary and secondary school-aged children to have separate evening meetings. Commencing Tuesday 25th April the secondary-aged session will be every Tuesday from 7 – 9 pm. The primary-age session will still be every Wednesday from 6 – 8 pm commencing Wednesday 26th April. Both sessions will still be at the Parish Rooms on Newbegin. Would parents please note that the |Youth Club will be closed completely during the first week of the Easter holidays (Wednesday 12th April). However, Youth Club will be open as normal for all ages on Wednesday 19th April before the new split session times begin the following week. At a recent meeting the Town Council recorded its congratulations and thanks to lead Youth Worker Harry Shires who has worked extremely hard, in conjunction with the management committee and volunteers, to ensure the fantastic success of the Youth Club project. Thanks must also go to Father Phil from St Nicholas Church who was instrumental in arranging use of the Parish Rooms for the Youth Club. TESCO CARRIER BAG FUND Hornsea Town Council is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the top grant of £5,000 by the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ scheme towards the redevelopment of the Skate Park in Hall Garth Park. The funding award was made possible by the support of residents and Tesco shoppers using their tokens in store to vote for the Skate Park redevelopment project. A HUGE thank you and well done to Tesco shoppers in Hornsea for your help and support! Thank you also to Cllr Angus Robinson who completed and submitted the grant application on behalf of the Town Council. Cllr Robinson leads the Skate Park User Group and continues to work tirelessly with the support of the Town Council, in pursuit of a new Skate Park for Hornsea. PLAY AREA EQUIPMENT Hornsea Town Council maintenance staff are carrying out re-painting of play equipment at various sites around the town in time for the spring/summer season. Re-painting of the majority of equipment in Hall Garth Park has now been completed and the site has definitely been given a ‘new lease of life’! Other areas will be updated in due course. The Town Council is aware that, following periods of heavy rainfall, areas in the vicinity of the play equipment in Hall Garth Park do become quite water logged. This issue will be considered in conjunction with the redevelopment of the Skate Park when, hopefully, this problem can be rectified.
