We just keep on growing, after signing up our 1,500th member a month ago we’ve just signed up our 2,000th! Daniel Heyes from Feniscowles joined up just after his 8th birthday, and had been waiting to do so since his older sister Emily joined. Daniel can’t wait to learn climbing, table tennis and snooker and he’s also a key musician so can’t wait to get started on the drums!
Daniel’s Dad John, told us he and his wife heard of the Youth Zone through the local community and were amazed at the facilities on offer for only 50p a session. ‘It’s great that kids can mix with other kids they may not meet at school, and it’s wonderful place for them to come and hang out with their friends outside of school and their home’.
Julia Wright, Head of Business Development at Blackburn Youth Zone, said ‘We’ve exceeded expectations with member numbers, we’d originally estimated to hit 2,000 in a year, but to reach it after just 12 weeks is amazing!’
