The Station primed for activity

Horsham residents and visitors enjoyed a ‘sneak peek’ of the region’s new home of youth services, The Station, ahead of a grand opening in February. 

Horsham Rural City Council youth services planning and engagement officer Louise Barnett said the ‘soft launch’ went well and included an opportunity for people to buy coffee and food from The Social Pantry van. 

“The youth councillors are getting really excited about the grand opening in February and they just wanted to show it off, considering we have a few events in January,” she said. 

“We showed people through the space, including Horsham council staff and councillors, and youth council members got to take them on tours.”

Ms Barnett said the youth council was working towards running four events in the January school holidays.

“We will have three-on-three basketball, which our youth councillor Mal is taking lead on organising, and then we’ve got three Level Up gaming events as well,” she said. 

“It’s a good way to keep kids busy through the holidays.”

The Station is the new name of the former Nexus building at 16 Pynsent Street, Horsham.
