We may be closed for Feb half term, but remember the @youth clubs and youth diner will be back in full swing soon. Just make sure you don't walk into the window trying to get in ;-)
Just a few snaps from the @youth nights at the Lounge. All this is thanks to our kind supporters!
This is just a sample of the work we do and where your money goes, be it a donation, or just simply enjoying our food and drinks.
Rachael one of the committee members did money management session.
The youths got to blind taste cookies and guess which were the cheapest and most expensive cookies.
They shared their earliest memories of money and looked at all the different influences on them about how they spend their money.
This week the kids have been busy preparing desserts for Valentines Day meals for various members of the community. Not only is it great fun, but it teaches them real world skills they can use later on in life. This sort of work is only possible with the support of the all those that give up their time, eat at The Lounge, or donate to keep The Lounge at the heart of the community.
Once again, we'd like to say a big thank you, from all of us.
These next two weeks we'll be registering for the Media/Creative Arts Course. It'll be run up until Christmas, and will include podcasting, video diaries and minute long videos. Allowing and giving, great new creative skills to those who attend, a way to report back progress and future events at The Lounge, also news and other events in the Childrens world they wish to share. It's ASDAN accredited, funded by the National Lot...tery, and ultimately allows recognition for the skills and knowledge gained during the course, by way of a nationally recognised certificate. The places are limited to 15, so we are going to give first refusal to the dozen or so aritiststic attendees from last term. Who, attended Daves Media Workshop a few weeks ago. And I think they'd all say how much fun it was, I was captivated too!
We're also lucky enough to be joined by Kieran Durrant, with his big ol lense and great eye for capturing the moment! He'll talk us through his passion and give us a few handy photo tips to click away ourselves....
Welcome back, we hope you all enjoyed the hols and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Great space, great ideas, great time!
Only @The Lounge.
Tuesday 6 - 8pm.
Many of you may have noticed that the Red Lion bus stop is looking a little more colourful these days. The muruals that have been put up inside the shelter were created by [email protected] The Lounge, along with Tim, Dawn, Hanah and Laura.
It is thanks to the support of the local people, businesses and council that help The Lounge create projects such as these that not only benefit those directly involved, but the wider community at large.
A reminder that the Youth Forum is on tonight from 6pm to 8pm where you get to have your say on the shape of The Lounge's youth work.
The main focus of the Forum tonight will be the ongoing work towards the bus shelter's new artwork, ideas for the future provisioning of youth work and what you would like to see come to life, as well as making some some mouth watering rock roads, thrown in for good measure.
Come along and see whats happening and have your say, even if you've never been before, your views and presence will be most welcome
