YOUNGSTERS enjoyed graffiti workshops and pizza this week as part of special holiday activities at Cashes Green Community Centre.

Taking place on Tuesday, August 10, the sessions were led by renowned local graffiti artist ZedInTheClouds and the take away pizza was served by the recently opened Crust Issues in Stroud.

Each of the three sessions were packed out and young people from Cashes Green and further afield dropped in throughout the day.

The event also doubled up as a consultation for a big revamp project that will see part of the building becoming a dedicated youth centre.

Jessie Hoskin, centre project manager and district councillor for Cainscross, said: "The kids loved it and we are so grateful to ZedInTheClouds for this time, it was also fantastic to be joined by the District Council Youth Team who signed up some of the young people taking part to the Cainscross Youth Forum."

Councillor Chris Brine said: "Events like this are so important for young people over the summer when they may be struggling to find interesting and affordable things to do."

The event will be followed by an exhibition and evening event on the Saturday, September 25.

Activities are being held throughout August at venues across the district as part of the HAF scheme. You can find out more about what is happening in your area by visiting this page:
