New Home for the Somerset Youth Equipment Store

Somerset County Council’s Youth Equipment Store (YES) has relocated from Hestercombe Gardens, its home for the past 10 years, to Hollies Children’s Centre in South Street, Taunton.

The store offers equipment for hire to children and young people’s groups at affordable prices.

There is a wide range of equipment available, from camping and hiking tools to stage lighting and mountain bikes. As well as a range of equipment and toys for children and young people with disabilities and additional needs – including sensory toys and mobility aids.

There is also a delivery service and voluntary groups can rent a minibus or people carrier from the store.

A Spokesperson for Somerset County Council, said: “The Somerset Youth Equipment Store provides a great selection of equipment for local groups to make use of. Children and young people’s groups are encouraged to take advantage of this fantastic resource.”

More information can be found at www.somersetyouth.co.uk or the store can be contacted on 01823 289387 or yes@somerset.gov.uk

A full Youth Equipment Store catalogue will be released in the summer.
