Thanet district Council press release

Young people can once again have a blast this Easter with the return of Easter Blast during the school holidays.

Aimed at 11 to 19 year olds, there will be three separate Easter Blast sessions, all taking place between 1pm and 5pm on Tuesday 7 April at Surestart Millmead, Thursday 9 April at Warre Rec, Ramsgate and on Tuesday 14 April at Upton School in Broadstairs.

Easter Blast is being put on by Engage, a group of organisations that work together to put on great youth events in Thanet.

There's something for everyone with Thanet District Council's Sport Matters team bringing their inflatable football pitch and offering volleyball, tug of war, ultimate Frisbee and target shooting sessions. You can also take part in a football drills skills school, try out athletics with Marlowe Athletics or take on a rugby fitness course, held in association with Thanet Wanderers.

There's DJing, technology and MCing workshops, master classes and band workshops from Pie Factory Music with break dancing workshops put on by the GAP Project. Pipeline will be bringing Bernie the Engage double decker youth bus, along with a gladiator pitch and sumo suits and a mobile skate park. You can get creative with the Thanet Coast Project and artists from Art for All, designing marine creations or try out for the Trinity Cheerleading Squad, who take part in national and international competitions all over England.

The Thanet Community Safety Partnership will be there with the police double decker bus, which has a PlayStation and wide screen TV, with information about how to stay safe and drink safely. You can find out more about drinking safely, with human size Jenga and noughts and crosses games, which can be played using beer goggles. These show you the effect that substances, such as alcohol and drugs, can have on the body and mind.

Full details of all the events taking place over the Easter holidays can be found in Youth Matters, the essential event guide and magazine for Thanet's young people. Distributed through schools, libraries and youth clubs across Thanet, you can also get a copy by calling 01843 577050.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
