SNAP DANCES, ever heard of them? Well

SNAP stands for Say No And Phone and is a project aimed at 11 - 17 year olds. The SNAP Community Partnership organise safe entertainment for our youth every school holiday.

On a Monday an event is held at Funky Monkeys for 11 - 14 year olds, the package varies slightly from event to event, but generally includes a huge bouncy castle assault course, bands and dance groups who help to teach the latest dances. Many Youth Organisations are involved and there is a quiet corner where themed activities like hair braiding, Mother's Day projects and many other interesting things take place.

On the Wednesday of that week an event is held at Time Night-club for the 14 - 17 year olds and coaches are laid on for this from Fakenham, Cromer and North Walsham. The in-house Time DJ provides the music and the atmosphere is really wired. Time provide the staff, but again many Youth Organisations, Police and Council representatives are involved so the events are well manned. Everyone is searched before they go into the club and cigarettes, alcohol, illegal substances and chewing gum are all confiscated at the door. At the October 2nd Year party, passive drugs dogs attended and found nothing at all. As well as the DJ there is a Chill Out Area where help and advice is given and this is always very popular as it deals with the current problems, for example, helping to cope with exams at exam time.

If anyone arrives who has been drinking alcahol or appears to be under the influence of illegal substances, they are NOT turned away. They are taken to a quiet room and their parents or a responsible adult is called and asked to come and collect them.

Tickets for these events are 4 and are available from Woolworths in Cromer, North Walsham and Fakenham and various places in Norwich including Virgin. If tickets are bought in Cromer or North Walsham you are able to book a coach ticket too at a cost of 1. If tickets are bought in Norwich you are not able to book the coach. Tickets are not available on the door.

SNAP is run in conjunction with Crimestoppers and a donation is made to them every year from the proceeds. Small donations are also made to local Youth Projects in the form of a grant of up to 250.00.

Unfortunately, we at the paper are a bit late for the Christmas events, however some of you will receive this issue in time to book so we are giving you those dates and ones for next year.

We have a real Brain Teaser for you this issue, there is more than one answer to this problem, one is easy and the others very complicated. See how you get on.

There are 12 golf balls, all of which appear to be identical although one is known to be of incorrect weight. Using a simple balance, capable of comparison only, can you make just three weighings to determine which ball is defective and whether it is heavy or light?
