A newly formed coalition of organisations working to improve the lives of young people and their families in Bridlington is launching an exciting programme of activities throughout the summer holidays.

Activities ranging from beach sports to music workshops and youth clubs are being organised by the newly formed Bridlington Youth Coalition.

This is a partnership between East Riding Council's youth and family support service (YFS), the Hinge, the Den Theatre, Christ Church, Headlands School, Bridlington School, Roots Project, Bridlington CYP, Humberside Police, East Riding College, the Hangout Youth Club and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service.

The coalition partners will be delivering a variety of activities including BMX, skateboarding, football and multi-sports, a beach sports festival, tennis, beach volleyball, youth clubs and paint and play.

With 94 sessions and nearly half of the activities free of charge, the coalition is hoping as many young people as possible will join in the fun, which will run from 24 July to 3 September.

A booklet with details of all the activities has been produced and distributed through the schools to promote all the activities. Copies of the booklet can be collected from the YFS office at 20 Blenheim road, Bridlington.

Philip Jackson, the council's partnership and strategic lead, said: "This is a great opportunity for young people to keep active, have fun and make new friends over the long summer holidays. This is the first project organised by Bridlington Youth Coalition following a recent survey of young people's wishes, and will hopefully be one of many projects in the future."
