We are excited about re opening our doors again as restrictions begin to ease and plans are being made for a summer of fun and reconnecting. Robbie will be giving the youth cafe a lick of paint over the coming weeks and we look forward to welcoming young people back, both old and new! ‘Summer at the Hive’ plans will be ready soon and we can’t wait to share them with you 🙂 Sinead is working hard with ideas and brainwaves going in all directions and doing an amazing job getting all our news out into the community.

The Hive Youth Radio, which was created during the first Lockdown in April 2020 is going strong with our young broadcasters growing in confidence and their shows are getting better and better. Paul has kept the show on the road for the past year encouraging young people to come up with new ideas and develop new skills. Shows are broadcast live on Saturday afternoons and we are new participants who want to give it a go are always welcome.

If you are a young person who would like to get involved with the Hive or are looking for support, please get in touch.
