A SPACE for young people has launched at the Bay Centre in Burnham.

The Zone offers a place for children aged 11 and over to go after school while parents are at work every Tuesday from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

Jonathan Smith, volunteer for Somerset Rural Youth, said: "This is a great space to hang out with your mates after school, have some food and use the computers to catch up on some homework.

"There are a range things young people can do; cooking, dancing , using games consoles, karaoke, crafts, art, sports and munch more such as fun community projects."
