53 Young Carers enjoyed 4 free activities this summer holiday:-

  • Chessington World of Adventures
  • Forest School Fun
  • Horse Riding
  • A day at Blacklands Farm

These activities are led by Burgess Hill Youth with support from Burgess Hill Town Council.  The activities were funded by a grant from Hall and Woodhouse.  The next event will be our 50th Young Carers event to be held in October.


Please contact Jennifer at the Town Council if you know of a young person that would like to attend the event:


Happy Birthday to PAUL MYLES!

Paul Myles celebrates his 70th Birthday on 20th May!

Everyone would like to wish him all the very best birthday wishes.

Many thanks to him for all his hard work and dedication over many years at Burgess Hill Youth.

The children and committee sang Happy Birthday and presented him with gifts including his own blue plaque! Town Councillor Steve Hansford- representative on Burgess Hill Youth – enjoyed the celebration and commented on how nice it was to see the club in action with 5 adult volunteers supporting the junior club night.

Multi Use Games Area- CLOSED due to rubbish & damage

It is with regret that Burgess Hill Youth have taken the decision to lock their Multi Use Games Area ( The Cage) and stopped use for the foreseeable future by the local community.

This action has been taken as a small minority of users, continually leave rubbish, drugs paraphernalia, smashed glass bottles and this weekend set fire to plastic bottles that have damaged the surface.

The area was completely cleaned up on Saturday and the pictures below depict what was found on Sunday.

The Club is run by a team of volunteers that worked hard to raised the funds to the refurbish The Cage last summer. It is disappointing to have to continually clear up others mess as they have no respect for the facility provided freely to the Community.

Young Carers Easter fun pictures

Burgess Hill Youth hosted two young carer events in the Easter holidays for 24 young carers – a trip to Fishers Farm Adventure Park and to Young Drive (based at Blacklands Farm).  These events were funded by Santander and organised with support from the Town Council. Easter Eggs were generously provided by Radmall Funeral Services.

Fishers Farm Activity Park has several activities within an area.  The children were able to access all of these including a climbing wall, bouncing pillows, tractor rides, magic show and climbing activities including a pirate ship.  We attended the magic show at 12pm and then sat together to enjoy our packed lunches and then the children could choose their activities.

Young Drive included structured activities such as blindfolded Landrover driving, quad biking challenge and rally car timed trial.  The group was divided into two teams led by two instructors and the teams competed against each other to earn the least penalty points.  We asked the young people to score this event as this was the first time we attended this venue – the comments were very positive.
