Things to do?

Seems new research has cited "boredom" as the main reason why teenagers are turning to drink and anti-social behaviour - wow; how much do they get paid for these insights into the glaringly obvious?! :roll: So, perhaps posters could come up with a list of constructive suggestions on "things for them to do"? :?

Lots of things, many for free, on the following websites:

In the case of my 18 year old who will be going to Bristol Uni at the end of September I told him to get a job, and great credit to him...... he has, a month's work sorting and counting components in a local warehouse in preparation for their annual stocktaking.

...and don't forget all kids aged under 16, or student card holders at Warrington Collegiate or Saver Card holders with Warrington Borough Transport can get into Warrington Town FC homes games free.

First league game Saturday August 15, kick off 3pm against the mighty Clitheroe !

Might be preferable IF these kids actually started playing a sport, rather than just watching - yer never know, we could find some champs among them! :wink:

 

We have plenty of kids playing at Warrington Town - and the ones who come and watch have a kick around on the grassed area behind the goals so get plenty of exercise.

Paul.

Just downloaded the summer fun booklet 2009, why has the booklet been designed by an outside design agency, (well designed though it is) and not by internal graphics/print department, I thought the WBC was try to save money?

 

because although WBC bang on about saving money, they seem to be carrying on as though the pot is still full.

 

Can't the whole bloody lot of them realise the amount of waste that goes on? They don't need auditors and expensive accountants to work that out. Give me a few quid an hour and I'll save them millions in a metter of weeks!!

Thanks Paul... never new about the summer fun leaflets for kids. Were they distributed :?

 

Sadly after looking though the info there's not much for 14+ year olds especially round this neck of the woods.

 

My 15 year old is bored stiff during the day although nights are ok as he has a job too :wink:
