A half term health kick

YOUNG people across St Helens are being invited to become apprentice chefs this half term (13 to 18 Feb) – or maybe face the Trial and Terror!

They’re just two of the activities being planned by the council’s Youth Service, which is lining up a bumper package of holiday fun at local youth centres to keep people busy.

Young Apprentice Chef sees teams of youngsters given 30 minutes to create their own brand of new, innovative ‘hot potato.’

Winning teams from each centre will see their products downed by those taking part in Trial and Terror – where other strange foods await contestants who are also being warned that they will get wet and slimy!

HEARTy breakfasts and Cupid’s Challenge are also on the list of activities planned during the break.

The half term programme follows a hugely successful Christmas schedule, which attracted nearly 300 visitors.

Councillor Sue Murphy, cabinet member for Family Intervention and Safer Communities, said: “Our youth centres made sure there was somewhere safe to go for young people across the borough.

“Our youth teams staged a range of activities including traditional hot pot supper evening, Christmas quiz, bingo and a film night.
