Young people in the Belper and Kilburn areas are being invited to take part in some fun filled events taking place on Friday nights for the next six weeks.

Some of the activities on offer are set to include handball, football, badminton, dance, NERF, KMXing, Laser Tag and OzBox. Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team will also be calling in to help out and meet local youngsters.
