Young people aged 11 and over will be able to beat the summer boredom at three different venues across the region during the school holidays.

The B.E.A.T programme (Be Educated, Be Active, Be Together), will commence on Monday, July 4.

It will take place each Monday, Wednesday and Friday until Friday, August 26 from 7pm until 10pm.

Young people will be able to attend the programme in Ballyclare Presbyterian Church, Glengormley Pavilion and Millgreen Youth Centre in Bawnmore.

There are a number of fun activities for everyone to enjoy including martial arts, urban sports, drumming, rugby, football, GAA, hockey, golf, cricket, arts and crafts. There is also a chance to hear about topics such as drug and alcohol awareness, healthy relationships and fire safety.

The programme is a partnership approach developed between Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Good Relations Section. If you’d like to join in the fun, contact Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP by calling 028 9034 0000.
