Teens often complain to me that there is nowhere for them to go and nothing for them to do in Deal. I was therefore really supportive of the great group of people who decided to change this for good, and give Deal's younger population somewhere not just for them to go to - but where they are welcomed.
After a LOT of hard work from a dedicated group of people – led by Amber Blackwell – tonight the Spires Youth Cafe was formally opened. I went along to see what's been done and to congratulate all those involved in person. There was an opening night disco and on other nights there will be a pool table, table football, karaoke, table tennis, plus there will be hot food, drinks and snacks for sale.
The Spires Cafe is in the Landmark and is open every Friday evening between 6.30 and 9.30 in the evening. I hope lots of kids will come along and take advantage of this space that is solely for them.
