Free hostel fun day to thank locals for ongoing support
10:01am Saturday 24th August 2013 in County News
BROAD Haven youth hostel will be throwing open its doors to the community on Sunday, September 8, to celebrate Youth Hostel Association (YHA) Day.
There’ll be free activities and entertainment on offer, including diving taster sessions with West Wales Divers, face painting, singing and dancing, fire lighting, cake baking and a ghost tour.
As well as showcasing the facilities available at the youth hostel, the free event is a ‘thank you’ to people who live in the area.
Last year volunteers across England Wales gave 120,000 hours of help so that the youth hostelling charity can continue to provide outstanding accommodation, learning experiences and facilities for young people and their families.
Sue Jervis, manager of YHA Broad Haven explained: "It is a great opportunity for us to show visitors and the local community all that we have to offer, above and beyond great value accommodation. YHA Day is also a thank you for our community’s continued support.”
YHA (England and Wales) Chief Executive Caroline White added: "We really appreciate all the support we get, especially in the communities where we have our hostels. YHA Day is our way of saying thank you and for anyone hasn’t seen what we have to offer or been through our doors this is a great chance to find out what we’re all about, and to share in the great welcome we offer.”
The day will also be an opportunity to see how hostels have undergone something of a re-vamp in recent years.
