The community development team at East Devon District Council has some fun leisure activities planned for members of its Littleham SWITCH youth group during the forthcoming half term holiday break.
On Monday, February 16, at Clayton House in Littleham, between 10am and 3.30pm, there will be two dance workshops each covering four different genres: bollywood, flamenco, streetdance and body contact hip hop.
Then on Wednesday, February 18, at the Thelma Hubert Gallery in Honiton, between 10am and 1pm, young people from both the Littleham and Millwey SWITCH groups will be taking part in photographic experiments.
These events are open to SWITCH group members only.
Councillor Jill Elson, portfolio holder for sustainable homes and communities at East Devon District Council said: “The community development team does a brilliant job with the SWITCH youth groups, which help raise the aspirations of young people on the Millwey and Littleham estates.
“SWITCH provides safe places for youngsters to hang out, as well as training and new experiences, which in turn helps channel energy into more positive directions.
“The photographic experiments workshop is continuing our longstanding relationship with the Thelma Hulbert Gallery and the session is funded by the Arts Council to bring people into the gallery who would not normally come.”
