A Saturday evening “hang-out” venue is being opened in Attleborough this weekend by local charity The Lighthouse.
Initially, Ignite is being run from the Scout Hut, but plans to move into the town council's new youth venue opening later this year.
Ignite aims to provide the young people of Attleborough and the surrounding villages with a safe, warm and dry area to hang out every Saturday evening - including free refreshments.
Since Christmas, members of the Ignite team have gone out on to the streets of Attleborough to make and keep contact with the young people in the town. It is the feedback from this work, and the two well-attended youth events they have run in the town, which has led to the new venture.
Another initiative, a signposting service for the town's young, where they can meet during the week with the Ignite team leader for tailor-made advice in contacting relevant agencies.
Ignite, established by Christ Community Church, will be running in collaboration with the town council and will hopefully be re-locating into the new youth building which will be situated on 'The Rec' and provided by the town council.
