CHIL­DREN from a youth group hosted a fes­ti­val of events for the com­mu­nity.

More than 320 peo­ple at­tended the week of events, held at var­i­ous venues on the Moss Es­tate by the young peo­ple from the Cre8 youth group.

It was a chance for them to show the com­mu­nity some of the ac­tiv­i­ties they take part in and give some per­for­mances.

Rob War­dle, from Cre8, said: “There was a huge amount of fun, with young peo­ple help­ing to or­gan­ise and run the events.

“The events were held over a week, with lo­cal young peo­ple and young adults at the cen­tre of the cel­e­bra­tions.

“Guests were en­ter­tained with orig­i­nal mu­si­cal per­for­mances, sto­ry­telling, lunches, danc­ing, a bar­be­cue and auc­tion and tours of com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

“Cre8 is a com­mu­nity char­ity pro­vid­ing learn­ing, work and fun ac­tiv­i­ties for young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies from the Moss.

“We run two busi­nesses which em­ploy young peo- ple as work­ers.”

Cre8 has also hosted a Mak­ing Char­i­ties Work day for sim­i­lar or­gan­i­sa­tions to ex­plore the idea of busi­ness start-ups to earn money for fund­ing char­i­ta­ble ac­tiv­i­ties.
