Haydon Wick Parish Council’s youth programme continues to build…

Haydon Wick Parish Council’s youth programme continues to build… 1900 1200 Caroline Hunt

‘Haydon Wick Parish Council’s youth programme continues to build, offering many opportunities for local young people to develop skills’

Haydon Wick Parish Council ran two fully inclusive youth activities during the February half-term holiday, both of which enabled the younger adults in the parish to participate in free, skill improving workshops.

The first was a trip to Ninja Warrior in Gloucester. The group enjoyed an opportunity to test their ninja skills, working in teams to scale obstacles and testing their nerve with free-falling challenges. The group worked as a team to overcome physical challenges, encouraging each other to take risks and compete in time trials.

Chair of the Parish Council’s Community Development Committee, Councillor Ellen Baker Lee had this to say about the programme:
“We are delighted that our new youth programme is going from strength to strength. We have learnt a lot in the last year by developing an extensive youth engagement programme, and we continue to learn and build on our successes. We were delighted with the response we received to the varied activities that took place during half-term, and we are really excited about the summer programme which seems to have something for everyone.

Last year we launched our Community Choices Project – in which we asked our community to vote for a community project to be delivered in this current financial year – to the end of March 2022. Our community voted for increased youth engagement, and I think we have done just that, and will continue to do so.

We continue to build working partnerships to deliver these varied, high quality youth activities and look forward to offering more skill developing workshops in the future’.

Also, available this year has been Youth Graffiti Design Workshops providing children and younger adults a safe space in which to explore their creativity by designing ambitious urban artworks.

The Parish Council also offered a free training afternoon with BEST – Be A Better You for local young people. This inclusive training session provided children and younger adults aged between 7 and 16 years a safe, fun and positive environment to develop essential life skills such as leadership and communication development. The programme has also offered a platform for increased socialisation, friendship building, and confidence making using sports activities such as boxing as a focus.

More events will be offered this summer. Details will be published on the Parish Council’s Youth Forum page on their website: https://haydonwick.gov.uk/youth-forum/ or follow news on Facebook and Instagram @haydonwickcouncil
