YOUNG people across Basingstoke and Deane are set for a summer of fun activities.

The Streetz scheme returns to community centres across the borough for people aged between 10-17-years-old to get involved with.

The Summer Streetz project will include fun and games, such as zorbing, karaoke, arts and crafts, cooking sessions and plenty more, to give young people the chance to try something new and socialise during the summer evenings.

Funded by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, with support from Anvil Arts and is delivered by local community groups.

After the success of last year’s event, sessions will run at community venues across the borough including The Warren Youth Club in Hatch Warren, Westside Community Centre in South Ham, Oakridge Hall, Sycamore Halls Community Centre in Winklebury; the YMCA at Roger Morris Centre, Eastrop, and Sherfield Park Community Centre.

In addition, a media project funded by Anvil Arts and delivered by 7Stream Media will give young people the opportunity to learn film techniques on mobile phones and professional cameras and enter a competition to win a camera, software and equipment for their youth club.

The borough council’s cabinet member for communities and community safety, Councillor Simon Bound, said: “The Streetz sessions are now in the tenth year and they have become more popular every year, so it’s wonderful that young people will get the chance to take part again – there will be plenty of activities to keep everybody happy.

“Thanks to the community groups and volunteers around the borough who take the time to make this happen.”
