Billy and Adie have been doing more to the Graffiti Marker Wall. It's looking better every time they add some more artwork. It's starting to get a really good response.

We are also getting the young people on the music production course to do a remix of the original sound track 'living in the wrong time lad.' The song featured in the music video at the end of the film. Once the track is remixed we will choreograph a dance routine and remix the actual video to fit. We are looking at starting this after the new year.

With the success of the first skate day we decided to do one more. There was more ideas to maintain and expand the ramp and skate facilities.
There was other new fund raising ideas. We are hoping to have regular meeting and try to plan how to raise enough funds to insure it for the general public.

It was really good to see the ramp in use again, it's been used as a stage and room partition loads more than an actual skate ramp.
Hopefully we will be able to get the ramp out occasionally and have regular meeting to arrange a plan of action on what to do with the ramp.

The Grime 'Safe Rave' saw some local talent step on the stage. We had booked Natty, but unfortunately he couldn't make it.
On the day we had still not sorted a Grime Dj replacement, it was looking to have to change the style of music despise the Youth being really excited for the grime genre.
Last minute we managed to book and secure Aura and Archie, two young local DJ's who were happy to come along and play grime. There was a huge turn out. Right in front of the speakers we plugged a couple of Mics in for the MC's. There must have been at least 20 young people passing the Mic around taking it in turns to spit their bars (Rap their lyrics). It was a very different atmosphere to usual, but it seemed to attract a lot of young people still.
We will be doing another grime one in the future, it was a nice difference.

We would like to host another Casino night, and loads more events.
The Drop Inn is only secure for 6 months into next year so we all need to start thinking of how to raise some funding for the centre to keep it open. Keep the ideas coming in, and we'll see what we can do!

The dubstep group spent the whole session playing with their bassline but it sound loads clearer now. The techno / house / drum and bass group went back to make some changes to their drum and bass track using what techniques they had experimented with last week on their house experiment.
The other group we hear was out sharing their unfinished track amongst friends and didn't turn up again, hopefully they will return to finish their track.
We have adopted the land in front of the entrance to our yard. So the idea is to build a wall and a small garden once the weather improves next year. The we can produce an environmental education wall for the public to see, it might even become part organic?
