Children and young people will be able to enjoy a host of special activities at The Way Youth Zone over the next few weeks thanks to the City of Wolverhampton Council.

It has commissioned Wolves Foundation and the YMCA to run a wide variety of sessions, from football to arts and crafts, street dance, gym sessions and even cookery workshops, at the School Street venue.

Staff from Wolves Foundation are holding football sessions for juniors and seniors on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 4.30-6.30pm and 7-9pm respectively, with a family session on Saturdays from 11am-2pm.

And the YMCA is holding activities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays including arts and crafts, cook and eat workshops, multi-sport and team building activities, street dance, yoga, self-defence classes and gym workouts.

The activities, which are open to everyone, have been commissioned by the council in response to temporary changes to services provided by The Way to enable it to make plans for a relaunch in the next few months. 

Mark Taylor, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Deputy Chief Executive, said: "We are delighted to be working with Wolves Foundation and the YMCA to provide an extensive programme of activities for our children and young people over the coming weeks.

"They will be offered alongside one-to-one support and drop-in sessions which continue to be delivered by the team at The Way while they also work on their plans to relaunch the Youth Zone with an exciting new offer for children and young people in the near future."
