David Butler, Croydon’s director of education and youth engagement said: “Our Easter programme offers a huge range of opportunities for young people to have fun, learn new skills and meet new people, whatever their interests. “At the same time we’re reaching out to offer help and advice on issues such as coping with exams, how to access jobs and opportunities.”
