The Youth Café does a variety of different activities both in and away from the Centre. The kids that come to the Centre do influence what we do because we ask them them what they’d like to do. Each week we try to do something different and the older members are encouraged to get involved in the planning stages.
Thursday Club – unfortunately unable to re-open on 12 Jan 2017 – if things change during the year we’ll update this page.
