Go Ape, Mattfen Hall

A fantastic and thrilling day out was had by all who went on Friday 29th August to Matfen Hall. Once through the safety talk our group of monkeys took to the tree tops and swung from branch to branch albeit yelling and screaming a bit in the process! They negotiated ladders, pullies, Tarzan swings and zip wires and used every muscle in their bodies to pull themselves along the tree line. The course consisted of five levels, one being the smallest and five the largest and most testing. Starting off on level one everyone was fine, heading across on level...

Wallsend Festival

This was a great day, with plenty of things to do for all the young people it turned out to be a fun packed day. The bus and the staff were inundated with young people, wanting to do different activities, the younger children enjoyed arts and crafts. Whilst the older ones, including parents, were more involved with the nail art and face painting. The day was a success, with all the young people interacting and participating extremely well with all the activities on offer.

Longbenton Hotspotting

Operation Hotspot is a multi-agency approach to tackle litter, anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping and to provide free home fire safety checks. This is also an opportunity to engage with residents to give reassurance and assist in developing community pride. These areas are pre-planned litter, fire and anti-social behaviour hot spots. This campaign was delivered over a seven day period to allow partners to dip in and dip out as resources allow. Schools also supported the event by holding litter picks to coincide with Operation Hotspot. Youth work was provided by Wallsend Boys Club, two sessions from 6pm to 8pm on 17th...
