Cybercafe looking for gamers in Congresbury

YOUNGSTERS in Congresbury are being urged to go along to weekly computer games sessions.

YOUNGSTERS in Congresbury are being urged to go along to weekly computer games sessions.

The Cybercafe, which is run by the Youth Partnership, boasts the latest consoles and a fast broadband connection, but not enough people are attending its weekly sessions.

Manager Ian Sheppard said: "Low numbers at the Thursday sessions are disappointing, we have tried changing the times and widening the age group so that pupils from years five and six can come along too, but with little success.

"We hoped the kind donation of a Playstation 3 by regulars at the Old Inn pub, to go with the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 consoles and the latest games, would attract more young people."

First sessions are free for young people who want to see what it is all about.

They are held in The Refectory, in Station Road, on Thursdays from 5-6.30pm.
