YOUNGSTERS across Clydebank and Dumbarton have been having summer fun during their school holidays with Y Sort It.

The youth charity, in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Youth Alliance, are running a summer programme throughout the month of July.

The free club is open to 10-17-year-olds on Wednesdays at The Hub, and Tuesdays at the Concord Centre from 12pm-3.30pm.

Every child who attends receives a free packed lunch.

Last Wednesday at The Hub, kids played bubble football, got their groove on with some samba drumming, took part in arts and crafts, learned aerial circus skills, and showed off their voices at singing workshops.

And Y Sort It have a jam-packed programme of high-quality arts opportunities for the rest of the month with professional arts facilitators lined up.

Alex McEwan, youth arts coordinator at Y Sort It, told the Post: “So far the reaction has been really positive, and the young people have risen to the challenge of trying new things and getting involved.”

Over the next few weeks, young people can try their hand at contemporary dance, film making, photography walks, traditional instruments and animation workshops.

Alex added: “We have tried to programme something for everyone with a mix across artistic disciplines. There are also a whole host of sporty activities to try.

“On Thursdays there will be outings and trips to local parks, rollerskating, and Inflata Nation, and the whole programme culminates in a youth festival at Auchengillan Outdoor Centre in August.”

Y Sort It are running a free breakfast club with sports and games for primary one to sevens every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the Hub between 10am-12pm until August 16.
