Showcase to highlight youth activities in Cramlington
August 13, 2019
“There is nothing for older kids to do in Cramlington” is a phrase that is often heard, but that’s just not true!
To demonstrate that there are many activities for young people in the town, a showcase is being organised to highlight the organisations that work with the 11-19 age group.
The Youth Activities Showcase (YAS) is being organised by Cramlington Town Council and Active Northumberland in partnership with Manor Walks and other agencies.
There will be a wide range of displays and information points to promote what is available in the town as well as demonstrations by some of the groups at timed points throughout the event.
The Youth Activities Showcase is taking place on Monday September 2nd, between 11am and 3pm, within Manor Walks and Concordia.
Over 50 youth organisations that work with the target age group have been invited to the event to enable members of the public to become more aware of who they are, what they do and their contact details.
Cramlington Town Council clerk Bob Baker said “The positivity behind this showcase is to be applauded – so often young people are referred to in a negative light. This event will highlight the many activities and organisations that work with older youths in Cramlington.”
Victoria Malloy from the Manor Walks Centre management team said “We are delighted to offer our support to this event and hope that lots of people come and see what is being done for the younger members of the Cramlington community.”
Phil Evans from Active Northumberland said “There will be a range of activities at Concordia Leisure Centre on September 2nd to link in to the youth showcase and it’s great to see young people actively demonstrating the many good things they do in the town.”
