Game on for Cheddar centre
A GROUP of school students have helped launch a computer gaming centre for use by the whole community.
Four A-level computing studies teenagers from The Kings Of Wessex Academy in Cheddar have opened a not-for-profit club for young people to play computers and games consoles.
Anyone from the age of 13 will be able to play at the Cheddar Gaming Centre for �2 a week, with all the money going back into new games.
In future, students Nick Buhagiar, Chris Chatterton, Richard House and Luke Kerton will organise a range of competitions and tournaments at the site, located in the Old Cowshed at the academy.
Spokesman for the school Jude Owens said: “Nick, Chris, Richard and Luke believe the Cheddar Gaming Centre will be an exciting and fun facility for young people within the community. They have always enjoyed gaming and find it a fun way to interact with friends, which can also test their teamwork skills.”
