GOING . . . going . . . gone!

Youngsters at Felixstowe's Level2 youth centre have been presented with a giant version of a popular game – and are already having bags of fun with it.

Hi-Tower is normally played on a table top and stands about 12 inches high, but this one stands five feet tall and is a real challenge.

The players remove the wooden blocks one by one until the tower falls and the person who removed the fatal brick is the loser. It then has to be rebuilt.

The game, along with another giant agility game Limbo, were presented to Level2 by Felixstowe Carnival Association, purchased with the proceeds from this year's procession.

Carnival secretary Richard Stewart said: "The association has been in communication with the organisers of Level2 for a few weeks now and rather than donate money to the project, we wanted to so do something a bit different.

"The idea for the giant games came from Level2 and having visited the project, I could understand why these games would be so appealing to the kids.

"The association always tries to keep the money raised in Felixstowe, from the carnival and other events, in Felixstowe and the Level2 youth project is a worthy recipient."

The youth centre, on the top floor of the Tesco store in Hamilton Road, is a meeting place for young people and provides somewhere for them to have a coffee and chat. It also offers counselling support for a wide range of issues, a homework study area, and a variety of activities.
