D’Biz happens every Wednesday, in the Mission House on Church Street or at St Anne’s Park in Newtown, for young people in the community aged 11-18. It is a place where the young people can go to relax, have conversations or get involved with the activity planned for that week, whether that be a game, a craft or cooking.
As a result of increased numbers at D’Biz, we have split into two groups. Primarily, the groups being split by ages (but there are exceptions). The groups are 11-15 years olds and 16 years old plus. There are groups run every other week from 7pm – 8:30pm (for 11-15 year olds) and 7pm to 9pm (for 16 plus).
Last year we had a weekend away at Snowdon View in Wales. The young people really enjoyed it and are eager to go back. We planned a trip to Laser Combat in December which was thoroughly enjoyed by the young people, and leaders, who attended – despite the cold, mud and snow! We hope to plan more trip like this in the future.
