YOUNG people in Dalton have been taking advantage of the chance to try out new activities for free.

The Dram Centre on Ridgeway in Dalton offered free taster sessions for a range of activities.

Youngsters aged eight to 18 could learn about film-making from KGB Productions, try their rugby league skills with coach Craig Denby or learn DJ skills from help from Connected 2, which uses music to encourage youngsters into education.

Art workshops, lessons from Sugabrown urban dance school, basketball sessions and drama workshops led by Holmfirth theatre company CragRats were also on offer.

The day ended with rounders.

Susan Johnson, event co- ordinator for the Dram Centre, said: "The aim was to give young people in the area a chance to try new things. Hopefully they will tell us what they would like to continue with and we will secure funding."

There would be a small charge to young people for attending the activities, although the taster session was free.

Dram Centre staff were supported by a team from Kirklees Young People's Service, led by area leader Jennifer Simons.
