Big Local DY10 has organised free half term fun activities provided by the Worcestershire County Council run ‘Youth Bus’ in the Horsefair and Broadwaters areas on Tuesday 28th May. The bus is equipped with computer games and music and is suitable for young people aged 10-17 years.
The bus will stop in 2 places during the day. First it will be in Upton Road 12:00pm until 2:50pm and will then move to St. George’s Social Club Car park 3:10pm until 6:00pm.
Whilst young people are enjoying the games, music and free refreshments on board the bus they will also have the opportunity to share their ideas on how they think £1million could be used to improve the area. They will also be able to meet workers from Kidderminster Youth House find out what activities they provide.
