We hope you are enjoying the last of the Summer sunshine – Autumn is just around the corner!
We are busy organising our yearly Summer Barbeque to say a big thank you to volunteers who give up their time throughout the year to help us. We hope this will be an opportunity to bring everyone together to celebrate the work being done and to share experiences and thoughts about the project. We now have over 60 young people accessing 7Corners so we are hoping that the barbecue will attract a good number (as it usually does when food is involved!) and bring everyone together to enjoy some food and music. Fingers crossed the weather is warm and sunny!
When the IYE festival took place back in July, young people filmed the event on the day and have been busy editing the footage to produce a mini documentary film which captures all the fun and entertainment of the successful event. We’ll let you know when the film is available to watch online – watch this space!
This month we have a new addition to the team – Tom has joined us on a work experience placement and is settling in well, providing lots of valued help at the Centre.
Our Hotspot caravan is still regularly reaching out to young people in the community. Every week we are out and about around Abergavenny, visiting Bailey Park, Abergavenny Castle and the ‘skate park’ on Hereford Road to meet the young people that frequent these areas.
We received very encouraging feedback when one young person said he’d missed us popping by when we had to skip our regular Hotspot evening to focus on setting up the IYE Festival. Very encouraging indeed! Please do get in touch with Ange if you are interested in joining us on the Hotspot project.
You can support our work with one simple step! Next time you buy something online visit the Easyfundraising website first before you make your purchase. At no extra cost to you, 7Corners will receive a donation from Easyfundraising.
