Building Blocks Youth Cafe

Thomas Evans- satisfied customer

Resolven Youth Café is held on a Tuesday once a month in Resolven Building Blocks—  6.30 pm to 8 pm for school year 6 pupils to school year 11. It opened on October 17th and provides a relaxing and safe environment for the village youth to visit.  Each session’s delicacies are themed, ranging from ‘Taco Tuesday’ to Italian week, —- easy-going food at reasonable prices and as well as music, the café boasts a pool table and a hockey table.

Building Blocks manageress, Ceri Pritchard, told me” We started to meet up over a year ago when we applied for the community fund. The Youth Forum came up with the idea of having a cafe and we started to talk about it further to get money to fund it. I do think it is important for the village youth, providing additional activities for them.”

Building Blocks are soon to host other festive events.  there will be a Christmas Fair and Parent Tour of the building  on December 6th from 3-7 pm and then a Turkey Tuesday with turkey rolls, chocolate logs and lots of other festive fare on the 12th of December.  As well as the Christmas themed cafe, Building Blocks are to hold a Parent and Child Christmas sensory session and child development skills class free of charge.   So for the next few weeks, during the Christmas build up, the  Building Blocks team have  you covered for everything you need to get into the festive spirit!

Behind the cafe, the Resolven Youth Forum have put in a lot of hard work during their spare time in order to get the cafe up and running. After visiting one of their events I can safely say that I think it’s a great idea.
