The Factory’s Young People’s Development Group recently visited the site of the new youth zone to get a feel for how the build is coming along.
Two members of the group Shams and Ryan told us what they thought:
“The visit to the factory youth zone was a good experience for the whole group who went. This is
because we got to see before hand what the inside of the youth zone would look like and from our
perspectives we thought it was really good for how it looked and how it was coming along.
“While we were there we all came up with ideas for what we could do in the different rooms and we were told these ideas could have been possible with the extra spaces we had. The multi-use games area was coming on pretty well. All of the foundations were laid down and all that needed to be done was to put the fencing up around it to make it secure.
The design is a great one and especially the glass cube on the front was a good idea because then people can see in and see some of the interesting activities we have on; including boxing, climbing wall, sports gym, dance area etc. The spaces we saw were really good because they were spacious so you could do a variety of activities.”
