Have an ‘Eggcellent’ Time this Easter with Fun Activities

March 15, 2016

LOCAL youth groups are promising an ‘eggcellent’ time for young people in North East Lincolnshire this Easter with a range of affordable, fun activities taking place in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham.

Youth Partnership – North East Lincs features eight youth focussed organisations and they have come together to put on a range of different activities for young people aged 8-19 to try during the Easter holidays.

The activities come on the back of a successful February half-term period where the partnership held several activities across the borough, including archery, boxing, climbing wall and a roller disco.

This time there are even more activities planned, including the aforementioned, as well as a session at a skate park, clay pigeon shooting and much, much more.

Penny Thompson is Senior Community Organiser for YMCA Humber, one of the organisations involved with the partnership, and she spoke about the hopes for an exciting Easter period.

She said: “The feedback we received from our half-term activities was very positive, so we decided to run further activities during the Easter holidays.

“Our previous community consultations with young people have fed into the activities that are being provided and we have tried to cover most of the areas across North East Lincolnshire.

“But the main aim is to provide young people with the opportunity to see what activities they are able to do on a regular basis and ensuring that they are at affordable prices.”
