Fyfield and West Overton Parish Council

Lockeridge Youth Club

Lockeridge Youth Club The Lockeridge Youth Club is back.

After a very successful pilot scheme earlier in the year lead by Innov8 Sportz in conjunction with JB Youth Services and supported by the Marlborough Area Board and the Local Youth Network, the Parish Council have agreed to facilitate the Lockeridge Youth Club for the next year. At a meeting of the Marlborough Area Board earlier this month the Parish Council was awarded a substantial grant towards the running of the club.  It is proposed for the club to initially follow a similar format to the pilot scheme with the involvement of Innov8 Sportz once again and it will generally take place on the third Thursday of the month at the Kennet Valley Hall from 7pm - 9pm and be open to all children in school years 7 - 11. The funding was awarded on the basis that the club will be required to be sustainable and self funding after the first year and to this end it is vital that we hear from any parents or local individuals who would be happy to volunteer.  All training and DBS checks would be provided and subject to sufficient volunteers they will be able to work on a rotational basis and therefore will not be required to attend every month.  Please contact Sophie Roberts parishclerk.fyfield@gmail.com if you are able to help. 

We would also love to hear from anyone in the community who would be interested in providing a workshop for the Youth Club, previous workshops have included drumming, graffiti art and cookery and we will of course be asking the youths at the first session what workshops and activities they would be interested to take part in.

Dates of the Youth Club will be announced shortly by social media, posters and leaflets.
