Girton Town Charity

Connections Bus Project Youth Club

This weekly club for young people aged 11-16 years, is free to attend and held on Tuesday evenings, 7.00-8.30pm, in the Cotton Hall.

Leader Alan Webb says: “Each week, we run a variety of activities for the young people to choose from including: table tennis (very popular and everyone brings their own bats), table football, karaoke and Nintendo Switch with FIFA. There’s also MarioKart, Death Squared, BomberMan and table-top games such as Battleships, Connect4, Uno, chess, draughts and Othello, as well as a Giant Jenga.

“We provide different crafts, a quiz with prizes and a cooking activity, a tuckshop with low prices and from time to time we organise an outside trip.

“Three youth workers always attend the Tuesday sessions to help facilitate activities and to date we are really pleased with the take-up. Young people who come along enjoy having the opportunity to meet in a safe space with their friends, away from home. Some are able to share concerns or worries with the youth workers and have found this has helped to reduce anxiety. If necessary, youth workers can provide additional advice or details of other organisations for more serious issues.

“Youth Groups can definitely deliver a range of positive benefits, helping young people to gain socials skills, learn about boundaries and respect, and get the chance to have the listening ear of a responsible adult outside of the family environment.”
