As well as organising a varied programme of activities for young people during the Summer Holidays we hope to be able to run three days out but unfortunately we dont have the funds to pay for the coaches so if there are any companies or individuals that are able to help us with this please get in touch with Steve on 07982018952. The trips are for any young people living in Redditch aged 12 to 19 and they will be advertised through the local schools and newspapers as well as through the local youth clubs and groups. There are normally 3 or 4 pick up and drop off points around the town to make sure that the trips are available to any young people regardless of where they live in the town. As well as any individual young people any organised youth groups or clubs would be most welcome to join us. The day trips out are to Ice Skating in Solihull on Thursday 11th August, Waterworld on Thursday 18th August and Drayton Manor on Wednesday 24th August. Booking forms will be available soon.

If you know of any 15 to 17 year olds that will be looking for something to do during the long Summer Holidays the National Citizen Service are running four week courses in which teenagers get the chance to do activities such as zip wiring, rock climbing and archery etc. The great thing about this course is that its only £50 per teenager. Some teenagers that come to the Redi Centre are already booked onto this course. Anyone interested should phone 0330 4141601 or go to www.ncsyes.co.uk
