Summer activities on offer for Burntwood youngsters

Young people in Burntwood are being reminded that there’s plenty for them to do during the summer.

Staffordshire Youth Service, Burntwood INIT and Positive Futures have joined forces to host the activities which are aimed at youngsters aged 13-19.

They will be offering a range of entertainment to encourage teenagers to get involved in positive activities during the school summer holidays.

Trampolining, art projects and dance are just some of the sessions that will be available, while Positive Futures will also be running courses to teach Panna football – a new form of street soccer originating from Holland.

There will also be a series of trips Stoke plaza skate park, Alton Towers and the Snowdome, while there will also be a BSM Driving School allowing young people to get behind the wheel and learn about some of the dangers on the roads.

Staffordshire County Councillor Ben Adams, Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture, said:

“With the plethora of activities available in and around Burntwood, young people certainly have no reason to be bored.  It’s fantastic to see so many ways young people can get involved in positive activities over the summer.”
