94% of the young people we spoke to told the parish council that they would love somewhere safe to hang out and have fun with their friends. The older generation said that they would like somewhere constructive for the young people to go, rather than hang around the streets.
We held several successful pop-up cafe’s during the spring & summer holidays and are very grateful to Brookmead school for offering the Youth Cafe a regular home in the past.
In May 2021, the Youth Cafe moved to its new home at Pitstone Pavilion, on Marsworth Road, opposite the Junction with Westfield Road. The full address is:
Pitstone Pavilion, Marsworth Road, Pitstone, Leighton Buzzard LU7 9AP
The cafe is an initiative by Pitstone Parish Council, we are very grateful for the support of all our volunteers, without whom it wouldn’t be able to operate.
If you are 11-16 years old and at secondary school you are welcome to attend the café, which is held every Wednesday from 6.30pm-8.00pm, during term time.
The Youth Cafe offers loads of cool activities like games, wide screen computer games, sports, workshops, craft activities, snacks and drinks, music and chill out space. The trained youth leaders will also be able to provide you with support and guidance.
All we ask is that you show respect to the people and property whilst at the cafe and to the neighbouring residents as you make your way home – so do come and join in the fun.
We are currently looking for additional volunteers to help us run the cafe, no qualifications are necessary, just a willingness to play games, serve refreshments, or join in with sports, crafts or activities. Suitable for anyone 18yrs or over with no upper age limit. Please contact Laurie Eagling if you would like to have a chat about helping, or for more information.
