Youth cafe opens
Carrick Community Leisure Group is launching a drop- in youth café at The Speakers starting on Wednesday, October 10 at 3pm finishing at 5pm for P7 and upwards.
A spokesperson said: “The youth café won’t have a set format, it is very much a do it yourself facility where the youths can come in to sit and chat with pals, finish their homework, play pool, darts, fooseball as well as make use of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
“There will be a 50p entrance fee and that will be kept for the youth to decide on what things they want extra to what we can offer now and we will assist in fulfilling these requests.
“Long term, we will be offering a music practice area where a drum kit, keyboard and guitars will be available for their use thanks to a grant from Ayrshire LEADER Scottish rural development fund.”
