The Youth Club Pilot Scheme started on 23rd January 2017 – the Club meets weekly on a Monday evening at Bourton Vale Cricket Club and is available to youngsters in school years 6 to 9. The sessions are being supervised by Community Mentoring & Support (CMAS), which is a well established organisation with experience in running similar sessions elsewhere in the county. The Club will evolve over time to meet the needs of those attending, and grants will be applied for to fund future equipment and activities. We hope the Club will prove popular with local youngsters. Further information about CMAS can be found here and details about the Youth Club are regularly posted here.
News Update - 3rd March 2017
Attendance has been much higher than anticipated, with well over 40 local youngsters attending most weeks. As a result, the sessions have had to be split while we review the activity from the first 3 months and agree the way forward from April onwards. Updates will be posted on social media, so do keep an eye out for these posts.
