Youth cafe goes 'green'

THE Big Fish Cafe is returning with environmentally-friendly lights.

THE Big Fish Cafe is returning with environmentally-friendly lights.The event, run by youth workers at Seaton Methodist Church for young people in Year Six and above, will now use energy-saving light bulbs.Instead of the traditional 'parcan' lights - producing a lot of heat using high levels of electricity - the organisers have invested in reducing the wattage to 18 watts per lamp.Councillor Sophie O'Connell said: "It's great to have an event which allows each young person to develop their creative skills and express themselves through the medium of music."The Big Fish Cafe is setting a great example for the local community by thinking about not just the future of Seaton's young population, but the environment in which we live by going green."Councillor Claire Wise, of Sustainable Seaton, said: "It is really exciting that this youth facility in Seaton not only caters for the young but is reducing its carbon footprint. I look forward to popping in to see the lights and find out what else is going on."The cafe offers live music, games and refreshments. Future events are March 7, April 4, May 2, June 13, and July 18.
