Over the Easter break, Sports4Kids ran their youth activities within Building 94; there were a range of exciting and fun activities and opportunities to make new friends in Whitehill & Bordon.
Building 94, managed by Whitehill & Bordon Community Trust, is located opposite the skate park on Budds Lane. Building 94 provides a space for youth providers to collaborate with us to provide activities for our youth.
A collaboration that has occurred over the Easter week was with Sports4Kids, who ran their Easter activities. They offered young people the opportunity to attend a range of workshops and activity classes, drawing on the expertise of local businesses, along with the skills and experience of the youth workers provided by Sport4Kids. As a result, the young people were able to try roller skating, boxing, pottery throwing, t-shirt design/printing, graffiti painting, music & drumming workshops, and they had the use the facilities on offer within Building 94, which includes a pool room, air hockey, arts and crafts, and outdoor space for those who want to run off some energy!
Building 94 provides a space for young people to spend time with friends, try new activities, and learn new skills from local providers.
A huge thank you to Mercers Gym for providing boxing sessions, Sarah Metcalfe for t-shirt design & printing, Bordon Roller Rink, Dolly Pots for providing Building 94’s very own great pottery throwdown, Georgie Leigh for graffiti sessions, and Tom Rowland & Shannon Stoner for their music and drumming sessions. We would also like to thank the fabulous food providers at the Shed - Stuff’d, Acorn Coffee and Cake, 350 Burger, and Shack for providing fantastic food for everyone across the week.
The feedback from the people who attended has been overwhelmingly positive. The main comments were that they enjoyed hanging out with friends and meeting new people; the adults were cool (wow!). The building is cool - different spaces and areas mean that they had choices on what they could do. In addition, they enjoyed the activities on offer - particularly boxing, pottery and graffiti.
The aim with Building 94 is to launch a youth group which Sports4Kids will run; more details are to come very soon! This will be alongside their holiday activity sessions, which will return over the May half term and summer holidays.
