Teenagers won’t have a chance to get bored this summer as there are loads of activities to keep them busy.
The brand new youth centre on the Thornton Estate will be opening this summer. There are also 17 other youth clubs in the city that will be taking part in making sure young people have a summer of fun.
Other activities which are taking place in various across the city include:
* art and performance sessions
* Union Jack Skate Park Festival
* wildlife workshops
* swimming for free or at a small cost
* Knowsley Safari Park trip at a small cost
* Film making day
In addition Stagecoach and Hull City Council Youth Services are offering discounted bus travel. Young people aged 11 – 16 years can get a Young Person’s Future Card which gives cheaper travel on buses in Hull and the East Riding. Young People with these cards can save 50 per cent on a day rider and buy a holiday rider during the school holidays for just £1.
To get a card young people need to call into the Travel Centre in the Interchange, pay £1 and the application will be processed while they wait.
Daemon Cartwright, Manager for Youth Services, said:
“The Young Person’s Future Card is a great idea and I’m delighted that this is our fifth summer of the partnership. We know that young people may want to try out some of the activities that aren’t taking place in their area, so by offering this card in partnership with Stagecoach, we can help them to get where they want to be for a reduced cost.”
Councillor Terry Geraghty, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said:
“We wanted to make sure we had a good choice of activities that appeal to the city’s children and young people to keep them busy throughout the summer.
“We hope that they will enjoy many of the free and low cost activities and try out something new too.”
