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.

The Youth Club have been making the most of the summer weather since the May half term and have spent a number of evenings on the Parish Field playing rounders, cricket and racing games. On Tuesday 21 June a number of the group, along with friends and family took part in what is becoming the annual solstice walk from Buckland Newton to Cerne Abbas. It was a truly beautiful evening and reminded us all of how wonderful it is to live in north Dorset. New Members As we start to think about the summer holidays, the Youth Club also starts to think about welcoming new members from the current Yrs 5 (about to go into Yr 6) and the Yrs 6 (about to go on to secondary school). To this end, we would like to welcome all the current Yrs 5 & 6s who attend Buckland Newton School, and any other Yrs 5 & 6 who may live in the area but attend a different school, to come along with their parents for our end of term BBQ and adults vs young people rounders match. This will be held on Tuesday 19 July at 1830 on the Parish Field. If you would like to join us, please contact Kate - 07860 582362. The Youth Club members look forward to welcoming you! Kate Parish
