People in the Corsham community are being invited to two events over the next few weeks to introduce them to facilities on offer at the new campus and help shape youth activities.
From 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday 22 October, young people are invited to visit the campus for an informal taster session, to familiarise themselves with the space and get a flavour of the facilities on offer.
The second event from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesday 4 November is open to the wider community, to encourage local providers of youth activities to meet with local young people to help build and shape a new Local Youth Network (LYN) for the Corsham community area.
Alan Macrae, chairman of the Corsham Area Board, said: “We are keen to make the most of the fantastic facilities at the campus and support local young people under this new community-led model.
“The new LYN forms a key element of this, and we want to engage with as many people as possible to ensure it has the best representation of local young people.”
Since the opening of Springfield Community Campus earlier this summer, the Corsham community area now benefits from modern, fit-for-purpose facilities for the delivery of youth activities.
Following the Corsham Area Board meeting on Thursday 25 September, local members approved and adopted a new model for the delivery of positive youth activities across the Corsham community area. The area board has a budget to support this and local youth activities, and the LYN will come up with recommendations for how the funding should be allocated.
Corsham’s newly-appointed community youth officer, Xina Hart, will work with the LYN and local providers to support this new model. If you are interested in finding out more, or becoming involved with the delivery of youth services in the Corsham community area, please do not hesitate to contact me or Xina (firstname.lastname@example.org).
