Chance to spin some discs

A DISC jockey has used funds from Cambridgeshire County Council to set up a series of DJ workshops in the Fenland area.

The County Council, together with charity Young Lives, has created a Transformation Fund to help establish activities for young people across the county.

DJ Stephen Calver has secured money from the fund to run workshops in March and Chatteris, with support from Youth Support Services.

Stephen is offering young people aged from 10 to 19 the opportunity to set up DJ equipment, learn to mix tracks and use equipment. The sessions will be held on alternate Monday evenings from 6.30pm to 8.30pm for £2 per person. Refreshments can also be bought.

The project will alternate between two venues - Doddington Village Hall and Benwick Primary School.

It will be held at Benwick Primary School on April 16, April 30, May 21, June 11, June 25, July 9, July 23, August 6, August 20 and September 10 and at Doddington Village Hall on April 23, May 14, May 28, June 18, July 2, July 16, July 30, August 13, September 3 and September 17.

The hope is that with the skills and confidence young people develop during these workshops, they will be able to participate in DJ slots at local events held at March and Chatteris throughout the year.
