The Hive on countdown to the grand opening

High tech equipment has started to arrive at The Hive, Wirral Youth Zone this month, with more to follow ahead of the opening weekend on April 8th.

With less than 30 days to go until the opening weekend, the exterior elements of the Youth Zone including the newly installed skate park is now complete with interior fitting out now well underway.

The fantastic visual looking climbing wall has been fitted and the gym equipment, supplied by Pulse Fitness, has recently arrived as has much of the office furniture and chairs. The boxing ring is set to arrive in the coming weeks as is many of the sofa’s, pool tables, desktop computers and lots more.

The Hive Youth Zone’s Young People’s Development Group has recently been working with OnSide Youth Zones Senior Development Surveyors and professional designers to put some of their fresh and exciting ideas into practice from artwork on the walls, to colours of their furniture to ensure The Hive is ‘buzzing’ with life in the weeks leading up to opening.

To make The Hive a reality, it needs to recruit 100 dedicated members of the community to make sure they deliver the best service for Wirral’s young people.
