Young people encouraged to join BEAT programme

Have your say

Young people aged 11 and over are being encouraged to join the B.E.A.T programme.

Beginning on June 30 and running for eight weeks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7 to 10pm, the programme is happening in Round Tower Integrated Primary School, Springfarm; Rathenraw Community Centre; Antrim Baptist Church, Greystone Link; Muckamore Community Centre; Crumlin Integrated College and The Old Congregation Presbyterian Church, Randalstown.

Come along and enjoy fun activities including martial arts, urban sports, drumming, rugby, GAA, hockey, drama, arts and crafts. You’ll also be able to hear about topics such as drug and alcohol awareness, healthy relationships and fire safety.

Councillor Noel Maguire, Chairman of Antrim Policing and Community Safety Partnership, said: “The summer B.E.A.T programme is a great way for young people to socialise in a safe environment, get involved in positive activities and learn more about some important issues.

“We hope that young people from across the Borough will get involved in the scheme.”

Area Youth Officer Tommy Dallas added: “This is a good example of partnership working between statutory agencies and the local community to address some of the issues facing young people across the Borough of Antrim.”
