"The idea is to provide sporting and well being activities on Friday evenings at times when young people might be vulnerable to risk taking or being drawn into anti-social behaviour or other community safety concerns.

"The sessions will also provide different sources of youth information and advice services and there will be different community safety partners involved throughout the 16 weeks.”

The full programme for the Twilight Sports Project can be found at the Our Place Camelon and Tamfourhill website.
