Make it a Summer to Remember With The Loft’s 2021 Summer Programme

The long awaited Loft summer programme is finally here! With a wide variety of activities on offer from sports and fitness, to day trips and street art and cooking there really is something for everyone. After a challenging few months the Loft staff are looking forward to a brighter summer, and to seeing both new and familiar faces over the next few months.

Youth Information Manager Gareth Gibson stated: “We are really looking forward to the start of our series of summer programmes.  The staff have been busy planning and organising and our desire is to see young people back participating in some enjoyable activities and mixing with their friends.  We will have something for everyone so just get in touch with the team and reserve a space and help us to get the vibrancy back, something that only young people can bring.”

The Loft team also look forward to being able to reopen the doors of the drop-in soon and get back to planning weekly events. Full details will be announced as soon as possible as all plans are dependent on government restrictions.
