The Hut

Visited the Sandy Hill Youth Project in Farnham yesterday evening, a project supported financially by the High Sheriff Youth Awards. Organised by Farnham Maltings (Emma Jones and Sue Ellis) and SCC Family Services (Tracy Scales) , the project involves young people from the Sandy Hill area coming together for evening activities. This month they are receiving tuition from graffiti experts to create designs for the repainting the outside walls of the Hut where they meet. The 11-19 year olds are benefiting from developing their social skills and an introduction to arts and culture. Had an enlightening conversation with Tracy Scales, a very experienced and knowledgable youth worker about the challenges facing young people living in this area.
