Stockland Youth Club - Open Meeting and Enrolment

Great progress has been made in establishing a regular youth club at the Victory Hall. Mel Andrews has volunteered to undertake the role of leader and together with a team consisting of a Deputy Leader and adult volunteers we plan to open the club on Friday 2nd November 2018 at 6.30pm

Children aged between 7 and 13 years will be eligible to become members.
The cost of each session will be £1 and the club will be held fortnightly.

We recognise there will be questions that parents may wish to ask about the club for example policies on safeguarding and governance. We are therefore holding an open meeting at the Victory Hall at 7.30 pm on Thursday 20th September where we will be able to answer your questions, you will also be able to enrol your child there.

Our grateful thanks go to the Stockland Fair Committee who kindly donated £300 towards the cost of establishing the youth club.

If you would like to volunteer to help at the club or have any unused games that you would like to donate to the club please contact Mel Andrews on:

Proposed Youth Club

The Hall Committee recently circulated a questionnaire to the children and youth of the parish asking if they would be interested in attending a youth club at the Victory Hall. The questionnaire asked about the type of activities they would be interested in and whether any parents would be willing to help in the organisation of the club, a total of 72 questionnaires were sent. The responses to the questionnaire showed there were a large number of children in the age range 9 –14 who support the idea and a number of parents indicated that they were willing to assist. The Hall Committee have analysed the returned questionnaires and will now progress the proposal to the next stage. The parents who have offered to help will be contacted in the New Year with a view to holding a meeting to discuss how they would be able to support a youth club.
There are many subjects to be considered when forming a youth club including funding and legislative compliance. We will keep you updated with progress.
