ANGUS Darts Association and the Cafe Project are joining forces to create a Youth Darts Academy for youngsters aged between 10 and 21 years.

The Academy will be based in the Cafe Project at Brothock Bridge, Arbroath, and will run every second Thursday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. In addition one Sunday per month will see a youth darts competition.

There is a need for this venture in the Angus area and the Cafe Project provides a safe environment for the young people to learn about the sport of darts.

Cafe is now opening three afternoons a week for the parent and toddler group. This started on Monday (January 16) and will also take in Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1.30 to 3 p.m.

There will be many activities on offer including painting, baking, water tables, messy play and many more toys for the children to play with. All are welcome, from birth to pre-school children.

The project’s after school club will now run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 3.30 to 5.15 p.m. for primary four to seven children.

On Friday afternoons there will be a pool competition with free entry and a prize for the winner.

Monday evenings are for the learning disabilities group. Folk attend from all over Angus and newcomers are welcome. Come along and see. On offer are bingo, darts and pool competitions.

The youth drop for primary seven and secondary school pupils runs on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Friday evenings are dedicated solely for primary seven pupils. All these evenings run from 5.45 to 9.30 p.m.

On a Wednesday evening there is a pool competition with free entry and a prize for the winner.
