The Hub


may 2024


Friday Night youth sessions take place in the Youth Hub - enter by door at bottom of driveway. There will be a cafe bar selling drinks and snacks.
For those attending the first session, this is a closed session, which means the doors will be locked at 6.20 and young people will stay in for the full session. it will not be monitored if young people are picked up after the session, they will be free to leave. If you specifically want your son/daughter kept in the Hub until you arrive, you must notify us in writing as soon as possible. If your son/daughter needs to leave before the end of the session, please can you let us know - please note that messenger and emails will not be checked after 4pm on the Friday. 
The second session for S2+ is a drop -in which means young people can pop in whenever suits and leave when suits (like popping into a cafe) . 
Sessions are FREE but young people must have a valid membership.
If your son/daughter wants to bring a friend who is not a member get in touch and i will email a membership form.
And i think that's it! Any questions, just get in touch.
Looking forward to Fri Sessions being back on again!
