YOUNG people studying on an Opt In+ course, run through Sussex Downs College, enjoyed learning to Street Surf this week.

With the assistance of sports coaches from Alternative Activites, learners were able to try the new activity, which requires balance, coordination and a whole lot of concentration.Other activites which the group have recently taken part in, include pottery painting, sports days and bowling.

The Opt In+ Summer Programme will be running from July 30 for four weeks, however numbers are limited to just 40 spaces. Anyone interested in joining in the fun and developing your skills in readiness for work, training, apprenticeships or college should call Sarah on 646163 or Camilla on 01273 511425 to book a place.

The programme is funded by the European Social Fund which aims at transforming lives through better skills and better job prospects.
