As always, we’ve been really busy over in Amazing Futures Brighton and Hove. Here’s some of what we’ve been up to lately…

Firstly, we had the departure of the wonderful Sue Winter, who started the project and has been a driving force at Amaze for nearly 20 years. Thank you so much to the all the parents, carers and young people who came to give her an amazing send-off at our talent show. We had a fantastic night, with lots of musical performances from Amazing Futures young people, previous Amazing Futures youth worker Pagane returned to host and do a stand-up set, and DJ Kiana kept the tunes coming. Everyone was on the dance floor before the night was over!

Jem is a smiling young man with short hair, wearing a black jumperSue is succeeded by Jem Hadert, who has been involved in the project as a management trainee for the past six months, before taking over as coordinator upon Sue’s retirement. This has helped make the transition as smooth as possible for the young people at the groups, and ensured Jem was able to hit the ground running.

We also had the first of our holiday schemes over in Portslade Village Centre during the Easter holidays. It was a packed week; we held a silent disco, had a visit from lots of animals and creepy crawlies and did lots of crafty activities. It was a huge success, and we’re looking forward to the next one, in the May half term, which we’re currently finalising plans for.
