Young people are invited to attend a Youth Club taster session at the Jubilee Hub, with free pizza on offer.

Saffron Walden Town Council and Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project have organised the session on Friday, April 26 to thank young people for taking part in the recent youth consultation - although anyone aged 11 to 16 is welcome.

From 5.30pm to 7.30pm, attendees can enjoy free activities, pizza, drinks, and snacks at the Jubilee Hub.

A £25 voucher will be awarded to the winner of the consultation prize draw, redeemable at a Saffron Walden retailer of their choice.

The consultation asked for young people's opinions on how youth funds should be used in 2024 and beyond.


Sixty per cent of respondents were between 11 and 12 years old.

The children asked for a free indoor area to socialise, fun activities, and outings, along with advice on mental health, finance, banking, and information on apprenticeships and careers.

Mike Hibbs, chair of Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project, said: "I'm delighted that the charity and Saffron Walden Town Council are working together to find out what facilities young people would like in the town - too often their voice is not heard."
