Luton Borough Council’s youth service is delivering a ‘pop-up cafe’ programme which gives young people the opportunity to take part in different activities throughout the summer.

They are running activities for two hours per day covering a range of workshops on gang awareness, anti-bullying, antisocial behaviour, drug and alcohol awareness, e-safety and appropriate awareness and multiculturalism.

They will also have the opportunity to play a variety of sports and activities including football, cricket, badminton and street art.

Councillor Mahmood Hussain said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people aged 8-18 years to take part in new and exciting activities that they may not normally do.

“The workshops are very informative and tackle those key issues currently affecting our young people in Luton.”

Lewsey Farm, 17 and 24 August, from 1.30pm till 3.30pm.
