Youth Club

Buckland Newton Youth Club is a new

initiative run voluntarily by villagers

for the young people of the village. It

aims to provide a safe and stimulating

environment for 11-16 year olds to

meet, relax and have the opportunity to

join in a variety of structured activities

including music sessions, film nights,

bake-offs and sport events. The club

will also endeavour to foster strong

links with all age groups within the

village through organising special

events for the community.

Buckland Newton Youth Club meets on a Tuesday evening between 18.30 and 20.00 in Buckland Newton Village Hall, during term time. If you have or are a young person who would like to join Buckland Newton Youth Club, you must be in Yrs 6 - Yr 12 from Buckland Newton and the surrounding parishes, and is run by local volunteers . Some additional help to run the Buckland Newton Youth Club is needed. Could you help? Please get in touch with Kate Parish on 07860 582362 / 01300 345497 or e-mail BucklandNewtonYC@gmail.com The summer term is always a lovely one with Buckland Newton Youth Club as the weather and the amazing outdoor activities provide a wealth of opportunities and experiences for young people. It was a beautiful evening to go kayaking at Castle Cove with Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre. 12 young people were able to take part, although I'm not sure how much time they spent in their kayaks, there was a lot of jumping off and on them! On Tuesday 20 June everyone enjoyed the annual solstice walk to Cerne Abbas, including a number of parents. As usual we stopped at the rope swing just off the high road for a picnic tea and plenty of time for lots of goes on the swing. Our next adventure will be an evening on Weymouth Beach which will be followed by a family camp out on the Parish Field. Incredibly we shall also be welcoming the Yr 5s (next year's Yr 6s) to an evening with the Youth Club at the beginning of July to give them of taste of what they can expect over the next few years they will be with us.
