Colchester United Holiday Hubs

The project aims to deliver sessions during school holidays across four venues (Clacton, Stanway, Townhouse & Vibe Youth Centres) aimed at young people aged 13 – 19. The sessions will run between 10:00 and 15:00. A number of sports and team building activities will be delivered and pre-prepared food will be freely available for attending young people. Additional activities around Knife Crime and Britain Stronger Together will be delivered.

This project is a funded programme aimed at providing activities and food for young people in identified areas of need. Whilst the programme will be open to all it will run alongside the Food & Fun programme which specifically targets young people in secondary education who access free school meals.

A Correction Note From Your District Councillor

I have asked the Clerk if she could please make this note available on the Parish Council’s Web site as I have made an error in my notes in the Parish Magazine for this month (August).

I had mentioned what should be recycled in the Red and Green recycling boxes as I understood some residents were not too sure what was meant by the red and green boxes. My note in the Parish Magazine may have confused the issue even more for which I apologise, as it was unintentionally incorrect. The paragraph should read:

I have been told that some residents are not too sure what is meant by the Green and Red boxes, this information is also available on TDC’s web site, but basically green boxes are for the recycling of Plastic Bottles and Metal cans, red boxes are for the recycling of Paper and Cardboard.

A more detailed explanation is available on TDC’s web site.

Many thanks
