Working with the Phoenix Youth Centre, Daventry and District Housing’s (DDH) Youth Board hosted two successful afternoons of half-term Halloween fun for local youngsters last week.

A total of 50 children and teenagers aged between eight and 15-years-old attended the Phoenix Youth Centre in Daventry from 1pm and 5pm on Thursday, October 30 and Friday, October 31.

On Thursday, the Freaky Friday Arts Zone featured Halloween-themed games, mask painting and plate decorating and was attended by 28 young people.

Then on Friday, the Fun Zone hosted 32 young people who took part in various sporting activities, such as skate ramps, parachute games and football.

DDH development officer Katie Jones said: “It was fantastic to see so many young people attending these free events and really enjoying themselves.

“Our Youth board members and the Phoenix Centre staff did an excellent job of keeping everybody entertained and we received some great feedback from children and parents.

“Each of the parents that feedback to us spoke positively about the timing and quality of the activities and how important it is that these sort of events are available during the school holidays.”
