Band Night Being Held For Islands’ Youngsters

childrens services signThe Council’s youth team is hosting a local bands music night on Thursday and coordinator Jim Johnson says if it proves successful, it could the first of many.

The event at the Old Town Inn is specifically for youngsters aged between 14 and 18 years.

It’ll be alcohol-free and even 18 year olds will be restricted to soft drinks.

Jim hopes that some of the students away at college, who are back for the holidays, will be able to see bands they wouldn’t normally be able to enjoy.

The event will also give slightly younger islanders a chance to experience an older environment, says Jim.

Well-known St Mary’s band All Squared Up will be supported by school youth bands during the music night which starts at 7:30pm and ends at 11pm.

Jim says it’s part of the Youth Services initiative to provide activities for year 12’s and 13s throughout the holiday period.
