Skate park a success in youth event

NEW summer events offer music, games and sports for young people in Steyning and Upper Beeding.

Two fun-packed afternoons were organised which gained positive feedback from parents and around 50 visitors throughout the afternoons.

Emma Edwards, community youth worker, said: “Both events went well and provided a good introduction to my role within the community.

“It was good to have PCSO Tom Slaughter along to the Steyning event and both wardens Mike and Paul who brought their mobile football goals along to Upper Beeding for the young people to enjoy. The events ran smoothly thanks to the help of the rest of the community youth work team, Horsham district council and volunteers from the local community. We were able to provide a range of fun activities for youth in the area who particularly enjoyed the sumo suits and mobile skate park.”

There will be a “come find it out” evening at The Cuthman’s Centre, Steyning on September 9 at 7.30pm detailing plans for future youth events.
