Drop In Centre in the Venu

Forest Row Drop In Centre is based in the VENU, a separate building to the Community Centre. It is a hive of activity with a regular turn out of young people aged between 12-19 years and is a great space for youth to relax and "be".

The Drop In Centre was started in 2010 and is for young people attending Secondary Education from aged 12 Years.
It is run by Youth Services Supervisor Cheryl Hawkins and her team of youth workers. (see below for team photo and names)

It is equipped with Game Stations, Pool Table, Computers, Table Tennis and Movies on our 50" Smart TV to name but a few. 
It also has board games, cards and arts, which are all encouraged and utilised.

Membership is FREE.

Forest Row Drop In Centre is a great place to meet your friends, make new friends and if you need a quiet place during the holidays to study or revise or just need a place to meet. 

There are regular organised activities and a selection of tuck and drinks available.


Monday-Friday: 15.30-18.30 (12-15 year olds).

Alternate Saturdays: 13.00 - 16.00 (12-15 year olds).
