SEPTEMBER and October are going to be exciting months for all those involved in Youth and Children's work in Suffolk.
The Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich has organised ten Roadshows across the county to share experience and good practice in youth and children's work.
The Church has contact with the largest number of young people of any organisation in the county and the Roadshows are aimed at people already working with or interested in working with young people.
"It's the first time we have run workshops like this," says Rev Peter Clement, the Diocesan Youth Advisor.

"The Roadshows are being supported by contributions from the Drugs Advisory Service, Connexions Service and Community Education.
