How Do You Solve a Problem Like.....

Hilton Community Centre in Inverness were running activities for young people that were proving so popular that is proving difficult for them to get them to leave at 10pm.

A councillor John Finnie said:

"There has been a lot of work which has gone into the facilities at Hilton Community Centre.

"They are very attractive to young people and that is down to the work of volunteers, the council but primarily the excellent work of Hilton Community Centre management committee."

He said sports, music and computer games sessions were on offer. But he added:

"They are so very much appreciated by the young folk that they are very keen to hang around and don't want to go home at 10pm."

So the organisers came up with a cunning plan to start playing songs from The Sound of Music and it works. If it doesn't the fall back plan is nursery rhymes. After all no self respecting teenager is going to want to be seen listening to nursery rhymes even if they are doing other activities.

All I can say is if you're sixteen going on seventeen, or any other age for that matter clearly the hills aren't that alive to the sound of music, or maybe it's just not your favourite thing.
