“We’re taking youth work on the road and hitting all the identified hot spots for young people across the area,” said Gemma Frail, Cupar Youth Café co-ordinator.

“The idea behind the project is to take our youth work services out and about across the small towns of the area and allow young people an opportunity to engage in meaningful activities throughout the summer holidays.

“The roadshow is an opportunity for young people to come along to their local park or skate park, get involved in some outdoor activities, including street football, outdoor acoustic music sessions, spray can art, park games and activities and a weapons display from the TA, as well as access to information and services relevant to all teenagers.”

The roadshow kicked off the summer season on Thursday in Tayport and Newport, and now moves on to the Howe.

It will be in Ladybank on Thursday, July 14, between 3pm and 5pm and in Kingskettle between 7pm and 9pm, then a week later, on July 21, will be at the skate park in Leuchars from 3pm to 5pm and at the park in Tom Morris Drive, St Andrews, from 7pm to 9pm.

It’s on to Bankie Park, Anstruther, on July 28 between 3pm and 5pm, then the skate park in St Monans between 7pm and 9pm.

On August 4, the roadshow will be at the skate park in Auchtermuchty between 3pm and 5pm and at the top park, Newburgh, from 7pm to 9pm.
