Youngsters find it’s good to talk
PROBLEM solving, games and activities to inspire youngsters to get talking were part of a packed schedule of events held at Cuffley Camp Outdoor Centre.
Organised by Welwyn Hatfield Council, the Your Say Youth conference was held to encourage children to speak about important topics that affect their everyday life in a relaxed and stimulating environment.
Youngsters were asked to join in outdoor and indoor challenges, working together in teams during the event at the venue in Carbone Hill.
The Youth and Sports Partnership team at the council, who compiled the day’s events, will use the activities in planning for the District Children’s Trust Partnership and future youth council work plans.
And the teenagers clearly enjoyed themselves. Kelly, 14, from Sir Frederic Osborn School, in Panshanger, WGC, said: ‘I love how it got me talking to people I didn’t [previously] know.”
