On Tuesday 10 August Cashes Green Community Centre held an event for young people as part of the Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) scheme co-sponsored by Gloucestershire County Council and Stroud District Council.
Throughout the day, the centre held Graffiti workshops for children and young people with renowned local graffiti artist ZedInTheClouds and take away pizza from the recently opened Crust Issues in Stroud.
The event was a stunning success with the each of the three sessions packed out and young people from Cashes Green and further afield dropping in throughout the day.
The event also doubled up as a consultation for a big revamp project that will see part of the centre becoming a dedicated youth centre.
Says Centre Project Manager and District Councillor for Cainscross Jessie Hoskin: “The kids loved it and we are so grateful to ZedInTheClouds for this time, it was also fantastic to be joined by the District Council Youth Team who signed up some of the young people taking part to the Cainscross Youth Forum.”
Councillor Chris Brine says: “Events like this are so important for young people over the Summer when they may be struggling to find interesting and affordable things to do.”
The event will be followed by an exhibition and evening event on the Saturday 25 September.
Activities are being held throughout August at venues across the District as part of the HAF scheme. You can find out more about what is happening in your area by visiting this page:
