There is a great spread of activities. Gets me thinking for us here. I like the

Momentum Driving Course. We organise a similar thing here for young drivers. It is a staged accident with all the gore, there is also an instructional side to this and the ramifications of accidents. It always goes down well. We are also working on getting a mobile skate park for the area. It is exciting. We introduce young folk to community radio, able to give them their own shows and teach them interview stuff as well as feature building. We have the use of a mobile football cage and hold competitions. In 2 weeks we have out own "It's a Knockout".Sadly, the County Council are cutting Youth Services. It seem we are the ones who need to fill the gaps. Folk have just turned into constant complainers, as soon as young folk sit on a bench, the police are called and the council come the next working day to remove it. I feel if we keep doing these sorts of things we will loose a great pool of expression and end up with bitter and resentful young adults.
