Celebrations will be held this weekend to officially mark the return of Felixstowe’s youth project to a town centre location.

Level Two has moved back to its old premises above Tesco, Hamilton Road – now known as The Youth Hub.

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 6, between 2pm and 4pm the doors are being thrown open to the community so people can find out more about what the project is doing to help young people.

Project manager Shez Southernwood said: “This event gives us the opportunity to celebrate the success to date of Level Two, and nail our colours to the mast as the main youth service provider in Felixstowe.

“This event is open to young people, parents/carers, local partners, and members of the community.

“Our 10th birthday event in November last year was a great success, but a lot has happened since then and we are keen to let everyone know all that we have achieved.

“Young people, staff and volunteers, will be on hand to promote all that Level Two has to offer.”
