The Garages Sports and Activity Centre has finally opened its doors to the Youth of Hemyock.  After a lot of hard work by a lot of people and some generous donations and successful grant applications the building is almost complete.  Facilities include a huge sports hall, a social room with kitchen, an office, an entrance hall, male, female and disabled toilets and a music room (as yet unfinished) 

Facilities for young people include a television,  a PS3 and various games, table tennis, pool, table football, football, darts and games.  There are a number of sofas and chairs and the Youth Coucil run a tuck shop.  All proceeds of which are for the benefit of the Centre. 

The centre is used for a number of activities and these include circuit training, cubs, scouts and zimba and may be hired for private events and parties.  If you would like to hire the Centre please contact Karen Pinder on 018236801034 

The Centre is open for young people every Friday night from 6.30pm til 9.00pm and everyone between the ages of 12/13 and 19 are welcome.  The more the merrier.

We will be organising some skills training and activities so it is up to you how the centre progresses. We are confident that the young people will move the project forward with the help of a number of willing adults.  We have had offers of help but would love more of you to get involved.  Each time the centre is open we need three adults to be present.  At the moment the adults have committed to one evening every 8 weeks.  If you feel this is something you could offer please get in touch via the Facebook Garages page or by ringing Lynn Taylor 01823680104.
