Churches join Halloween hotdogs initiative

VibeYouthBus420Churches and Christian youth organisations across South Norfolk are involved in a plan to hand out hotdogs and drinks to youngsters this Halloween in a bid to break down barriers and stop anti-social behaviour.

 
Teams of volunteers will be  setting up stands and handing out free hot dogs and hot chocolate to youngsters at churches, village halls and other locations in Long Stratton, Diss, Harleston, Thurton, Banham, Wymondham, Loddon and Poringland tonight (October 31).
 
The operation is being organized by freelance youth worker Sarah Woodger and funded by South Norfolk Council.
 
Sarah said: “I am working with local church youth groups such as Integrate YFC, Norwich YFC an Bramerton churches Byrus group, alongside other community groups, to make young people feel valued and accepted while also reassuring older residents. We hope it will also reduce anti-social behaviour.”
 
Anglican churches in Diss and Banham, alongside the Vibe Youth Bus which will be parked at the Market Cross in the centre of Wymondham, will be venues for the initiative.
 
“We want to engage young people in conversation,” said Sarah. “Barriers can be broken down. We want to encourage tolerance and mutual respect.”
 
If you would like to get involved you can contact Sarah on woodger4family@aol.com  or call 07891 265800.
