Exploring our Horizons Together


Youth Club

Due to Covid-19 this leisure activity is close, please see our Covid-19 Activities and at home exercises.


Part of the Short Breaks Programme


1st and 3rd Friday Evenings (from 6.30pm to 8.30pm) at the Ridgeway Community Centre adjacent to Buckskin Lane, Buckskin.


The Youth Club is for teenagers in the range 11 to 18 and each session has a theme (e.g. art, sports, games). Currently, the numbers attending are less than 10 but we are striving to increase attendances.


The club sessions include:-

  • Generally 2 main activities each week (i.e. before and after the refreshment break).
  • Activities include singing, music, drama, quizzes, games, sports plus arts and crafts.
  • Tuck Shop
  • Refreshments midway through the 2 hour session.
