Variety of activities on offer at Malvern Youth Centre

Malvern Youth Centre sessionsWorcestershire County Council is inviting families and young people to take part in their latest 'hands-on' weekend session at Malvern Youth Centre.

Following on from their unique Roots and Shoots summer courses, the Malvern Youth Centre and Transition Malvern have organised a new series of weekend workshops aimed at building on the growing ethos of regenerating community spirit and re-learning some of the traditional skills that may have been lost.

The courses are intended to encourage different generations to work together to learn new skills, yet traditional skills such as spinning wool, baking bread and seasonal crafts such as Christmas wreaths, willow lanterns and toy making.

The sessions, which take place every Saturday at Malvern Youth Centre, between 3pm and 5.30pm, offer a chance to learn new skills from experts who will be on hand to show how these skills can not only be fun to do, but be put to good use around our homes and could also help save money too.

Jon White, Worcestershire County Council's Malvern Youth Centre Manager, said: "This is a chance for families and young people to get involved in a series of amazing activities over the coming months. The workshops will be great fun as well as hopefully promoting a more sustainable and make do and mend attitude that could save money.

"The activities will be aimed at helping young people learn from the older generations, promoting a greater understanding as well as gaining new skills."

Most of the sessions are free for both adults and children (under 10's have to be accompanied by an adult.)

Positive Opportunities Worcester (POW) funding - a government initiative to help children try new things - may be available for those eligible.
