What a delight to see local people coming in back into the Centre! A real sense of the young people, young parents and babies coming out of isolation and being able to enjoy activities in small groups again. Some simply enjoying being outside, by the river in the sun, taking time to unwind.
We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning groups later in May, to resume social activities in the newly refurbished, bright and welcoming rooms. We are also hoping to run a Covid-safe version of the River Festival in July. Look out for details as restrictions lift and plans progress. This annual event is a major contributor to our running costs.
Great news! The Government’s Road Map Stage 2 allows us to invite larger groups of young people to return to the Centre. So, from 12 April, we will be running a number of social sessions over three evenings each week. These pre-booked sessions are scheduled to ensure the Centre is not too full at any one time and to sanitise rooms between groups.
Junior Club (9-13s) Mondays: 45-minute sessions between 5 & 7pm
Sunday Club for SEND young people 10.30-1.30 Sundays in term time
ROOM HIRE We are also looking forward to welcoming back all of our previous community users and opening our doors to new ones from 17 May, In 2020 our vision was to become more sustainable, including making best use of our great venue to generate funds for vital youth support work.
